Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa made Honorary Citizen of Katowice!


On Wednesday, 8th September, at 11 o’clock, a ceremonial session of the Katowice City Council took place at the seat of NOSPR to award Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa, a composer and long-term director of NOSPR (2000-2018), Honorary Citizenship.

It would be difficult to overestimate Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa’s contribution to the cultural development of Katowice, most completely summarised with her own words at the opening of NOSPR’s new concert hall in 2014:

– While Katowice was a most important industrial centre for 150 years, now it will be an important cultural centre on the map of Poland and – thanks to NOSPR – Europe for another 150 years. History of music shows it is every 150 years that eras and styles tend to change.

While managing NOSPR, Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa led the work which resulted in the establishment of the Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition.

We would like to convey our heartfelt congratulations on such an extraordinary honour!
