Śpiewnik Nahornego Made in #jazzUMCS (PL)

In order to save from the obliteration the greatest achievements of Polish music, the organizers of the Lublin Jazz Festival invite to the program “Nahorny’s Songbook”. Mariusz Bogdanowicz prepares the programme with students of Jazz and Entertainment Music of UMCS in Lublin. Włodzimierz Nahorny, a composer and legend of Polish jazz will perform in the concert. Włodzimierz Nahorny’s songs, similar to his jazz compositions, constitute a permanent heritage of Polish popular music and over the years they have become the equivalent of American standards, repeatedly performed and reinterpreted by successive generations of musicians. The project “Śpiewnik Nahornego” is also part of the idea of ​​engaging students in artistic direction to serious artistic activities, who can thus gain their first stage experience, appearing alongside professionals.

The best vocalists studying at Jazz and Entertainment Music at the Faculty of Arts of UMCS will sing songs by Włodzimierz Nahorny. The program will contain twelve songs of the Master.

The artistic patron and the initiator of the project is Mariusz Bogdanowicz. The first concert “Nahorny songbook made in #jazzUMCS” took place in April 2017.
