From Renaissance song by John Dowland to world premieres of brand new works by Kraków-based composers – the Art Forum Foundation and its partners present a cycle Creative Scholarship of the City of Krakow Concerts. During four evening we will hear musicians – holders of the scholarship – and their guests performing works by Cracovian composers (please mind that some of them, such as Wojciech Widłak and Marcel Chyrzyński are also scholarship holders!)
The concerts will take place at three carefully chosen venues: the Palace of Art, St Dorothy’s Chapel at the Church of St Catherine, and the Bishop Erazm Ciołek Palace (branch of the National Museum in Krakow). Each of the venues perfectly match the intimate nature of the events and its repertoire and allow the participants to enjoy art also in the visual sphere.

The Creative Scholarships of the City of Krakow are granted since 1994 by the City Council. They are meant for exceptionally talented artists and creators aged 30 or less. They make it possible for the holders to carry out their artistic plans and original scholarship programmes.
