Concert Symfonia Europejska
Grand Theatre – Polish National Opera in Warsaw
1st May, 19.00 p.m.
Radzimir Dębski (JIMEK) and NOSPR on the same stage. The program will join two musical worlds: classical and popular. It is not a coincidence that among the works we will hear Polonez by Wojciech Kilar from the movie Pan Tadeusz, which beautifully refers to the Polish tradition of national dances. What is more, it will become a kind of bridge between the Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 by Ludwig van Beethoven and compositions by Radzimir Dębski, which will be heard in the second part of the concert and are full of influences from modern Europe and the world.

During the picnic in May we will invite participants to intergenerational Polish-EU quiz, as well as to taboo, memory, word games and contests. Together with experienced animators we will learn about national and EU symbols and try to make them ourselves during workshops. At the picnic also children will have a chance to speak – their thoughts on the European Union will be set on a big canvas, which then we will colour together.
Besides the educational zone, visitors of the Royal Łazienki will also be invited to a dance show and they will also have a chance to take part in juggling workshops.
The shows presenting artistic skills will be enriched by the march of police and military orchestras which will perform, among others, the anthem of the European Union.
Picnic “Rodzinna Europa” will take place thanks to the cooperation of the National Centre for Culture Poland with the Royal Łazienki Museum, within the “European Picnic” organized by the Museum.
