For the fans of the Parish Church organ
In keeping with its summer tradition, the Society of the Friends of the Poznan Parish Church will again hold Old Town Organ Concerts.
Built by Friedrich Ladegast in 1876, the organ fills the church with beautiful sound, the ornate instrument fitting perfectly into the temple's baroque interior. The concerts, which will take place on three Thursdays of July, will feature Maciej Zakrzewski, Daniel Prajzner and Jakub Pankowiak at the keydesk.
