BALTIC NEOPOLIS ORCHESTRA

Baltic Neopolis Orchestra is a unique orchestra in Poland’s musical landscape. It began in 2008. Under the leadership of its Founder/CEO, Emilia Goch, the orchestra has gone from strength to strength in a remarkably short time, achieving success in both its concert and recording careers. In 2015, this success was crowned with the Polish Grammy for Best Music Album of the Year. It also hosts its own subscription séries where it is resident at Szczecin, and is also a frequent visitor as guests at various concert halls and music festivals both at home and abroad. The Orchestra is much lauded for the high artistic standards which the core team pursues tirelessly in perfection of the standard classical repertoire. Simultaneously, it searches constantly for new challenges by working with the best and most inspiring musicians available in and out of the country. The BNO is committed to reaching out to a wide audience, and not just the converted. To date, it has recorded and performed with artists across different musical fields, ranging from collaborations with the Jan Szyrocki Choir of West Pomeranian University of Technology (2013), composers Mikołaj Górecki and Paweł Łukaszewski, saxophonist Alina Mleczko (2014) and soprano Joanna Tylkowska-Drożdż (2015) .
