The Organum Academic Choir is a leading institution in the music life of Krakow. (...) The ensemble was established in 1969 as an initiative of a Krakow music teacher and organ master, Bogusław Grzybek, who has remained the Choir's conductor and artistic director. From its earliest days, the Choir operated under the auspices of the Club of Catholic Intelligentsia which automatically indicated the general course in the operation of the Choir, aligning it powerfully with the Church as well as Polish and Christian traditions. (...) The Choir cooperates with Polish philharmonic institutions, Lvov Philharmonic, Krakow Opera, Warsaw Chamber Opera, and Krakow theatres. It is a regular participant and laureate of choir contests, festivals, and competitions. It is strongly involved in recording, continuously expanding and enriching its repertoire which, side by side with early music includes the works by contemporary artists: Górecki, Koszewski, Krenz, Nikodemowicz, Penderecki, Szeligowski, and Twardowski. Annually, the choir performs around 50 concerts. For the last six years it has performed together with the Ricecar Instrumental Ensemble, adding to its repertoire oratory music (Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Mozart, Vivaldi.) The concerts of the Choir were highly successful in nearly all European countries and in the USA. Especially memorable are the performances in Vatican.

The EUROCORR 2018 Congress 2018 Congress Dinner will be organized on Wednesday, September 12, starting at 19:30. It will take place in an unique place - The Old Tram Depot (in polish: Stara Zajezdnia by DeSilva).

The Old Tram Depot was established in 1913 along with the start-up of a broad-gauge tram line in Cracow - it was the second facility of this type at the time, as there was also a six-track hall nearby built for the purposes of a narrow-gauge track - currently a home to the Museum of Municipal Engineering.

Together with the development of the tram network in the post-war period, construction of a new tram depot located in Podgórze was planned. Works began right before the outbreak of the war and continued during the occupation. After its start-up, the old depot at Wawrzyńca Street started to gradually lose its significance.

At the beginning of the 1960s when trams were ultimately removed from the depot accompaniedby liquidation ofthe rail line, the depot building served as a place for bus workshops and warehouses.  At that point the depot entirely lost its importance. Later, for many years the historical building was home to a go-karttrack, on which the first driving steps were taken, among others, by Robert Kubica. The building, however, was closed in 2007, due to the danger of collapsing. Since June 2012 Stara Zajednia (Old Tram Depot) by DeSilva has been operating in the current form as a restaurant and a mini brewery. 

The renovated building of Stara Zajezdnia (Old Tram Depot) by DeSilva  is a unique facility. The hall is an example of wooden framework architecture with brick filling, very rare in Cracow, commonly called the “Prussian wall”. The hall front is decorated with a picturesque top bearing a clock with Art Nouveau finish. The Main Hall belongs to an architectural and construction complex, which is under legal protection - entered into the register of monuments in 1985 and the World Cultural and Natural Heritage List UNESCO, and known as a historical monument.

Don't miss the opportunity to meet your colleagues again at this unique monument and enjoy polish dishes during the performance of the polish Jarek Wist Band (the best jazz musicians in Poland).
