University concerts

University concerts were started in 1986 on the initiative of the then rector of the Jagiellonian University, prof. dr. Józef Gierowski. In the same year, the Department of Theory and History of Music of the Jagiellonian University celebrated its 75th anniversary. The concerts take place at the Collegium Novum and combine the best performed chamber music with lectures by professors of various specialties. In the programs, the organizers also present the work of musicians awarded with doctorates, such as Karol Szymanowski, Ignacy Paderewski or Witold Lutosławski.
