The third edition of the festival promoting the Władysław Żeleński works and the tradition of salon concerts is devoted not only to Żeleński, but also to Stanisław Moniuszko on the occasion of his jubilee.
Both have invaluable merits for the development of Polish song creation, which is why the festival program will include three vocal recitals, as well as an orchestra concert with arrangements of Moniuszko's songs, recitals of the piano duo and string quartet.  The program also includes lectures and free publication.

The festival's partners are: National Museum - Jan Matejko House, Institute of Musicology of the Jagiellonian University and the Władysław Żeleński Music Secondary School.
