Radomska Orkiestra Kameralna
Radom Chamber Orchestra was founded in January 2007 as a cultural institution financed by the Radom municipality. The orchestra consists of sixteen string players.Its first Managing and Artistic Director was Maciej Żółtowski. Since September 2017 this post has been held by Natalia Dąbrówka. In addition to regular concerts, the orchestra organises special events: the International String Quartet Competition, Krzysztof Penderecki International Composers’ Competition ARBORETUM, and the Conductors Academy. It has performed with such prominent soloists and conductors as Lidia Grychtołówna, Piotr Pławner, Tytus Wojnowicz, Krzysztof Pełech, Krzysztof Penderecki, Jan Jakub Bokun, Łukasz Borowicz, Stephen Ellery, Jonathan Brett, Patrick Gallois, Michał Drewnowski, Emilian Madey, Łukasz Długosz, Avri Levitan and Marko Ylönen. Its diverse repertoire includes works from the staple string orchestra repertoire as well as the less known, recently discovered pieces. The extraordinary versatility of the orchestra also allows for stylish and historically informed interpretations of Baroque music and the early symphonies by Haydn and Mozart. The important part of R.O.K.’s repertoire is music of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
