SILESIAN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Karol Stryja founded the Silesian Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra in 1981, since 1983 known as the Silesian Chamber Orchestra. The first artistic director of the orchestra was its cofounder, Jan Wincenty Hawel, responsible for the orchestra’s initial success. 25 years later he was followed by Massimiliano Caldi, who has supervised the further development of the ensemble, which has appeared widely in Poland and abroad, collaborating with leading soloists and making significant additions to recorded repertoire.
