Conducting great orchestra

There was a problem with light, but I like this 'scene' -- only two players and conductor. (The last two violinists are conducted by Marek Moś, while viola player goes out.)
The photo was taken on sunday concert in Chorzów Culture Center. In fact it is the end of the Symphony No. 45 in F-sharp minor, known as the "Farewell" Symphony, by Joseph Haydn -- musicians are asked to go out in the finale.

World Book Day

The interior of the bookstore Królewska Huta. (Królewska Huta is the name of the part of todays Chorzów -- the polish translation of german Königshütte -- some shops in the centre of Chorzów uses this name. The name is derived from the settlement build (1799) for workers of the steelworks "König" (king in german).)

Inside Assumption of Mary Church

Interior of Assumption of Mary Church in Chorzów Batory. The photo was taken before Easter, so the church is still in the lent decorations. The ropes below celing are installed because of mining damage. The Assumption of Mary Church was built in Gothic Revival style.

And below - tulips for m_m from Nowy Sącz Daily Photo (because of the tulips on this blog). Tulips are blooming on many squares in Chorzów.

Dido and Aeneas

Yesterday, I was in Chorzów Culture Center to see (and hear) performance of Henry Purcells' "Dido and Aeneas". The opera was performed by young people from Upper Silesia, I think, half of them were amteurs. But Dido's "When I am laid in earth" moves me everytime. Above: Aleksandra Hruby as Dido, and Jarosław Kitala as Aeneas. Below: Aleksandra Hruby (Dido) and Joanna Wojnowska as Belinda (in "When I am laid in earth").

Karolinka and Karliczek

The sculpture (in the Silesian Culture and Recreation Park) represents two lovers from the folk song "Karolinka" (or, for many people "Poszła Karolinka do Gogolina" -- "Caroline went to Gogolin"). Lovers names are: Karolinka (diminutive from Karolina (Caroline)) and Karliczek (diminutive from Karol (Charles)).
