West Side Sinfonietta

The ensemble is a joint initiative of the musicians of the NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic and the M. Karłowicz Philharmonic in Szczecin. Instrumentalists of both major institutions from western Poland exchange various artistic experiences. The orchestra is not conducted by a conductor, but by a violinist. This function is performed by concert masters Marcin Danilewski and Paweł Maślanka, who together with the excellent double bass player Jacek Sosna form the core of the orchestra.

The ensemble's repertoire is very wide, with special place occupied by the music of Viennese composers (J. Hadyn, W.A. Mozart) and salon music (Strauss family, F. Lehár).

The orchestra owes its existence to the favour of the director of the National Forum of Music in Wrocław Andrzej Kosendiak and the director of the Szczecin Philharmonic in Dorota Serwa.
