The Bydgoszcz Philharmonic ranks among the leading musical institutions in the country. It has two permanent artistic groups. One is established in 1946. Its traditions date back even further, to the interwar period, to City Symphonic Orchestra which exist at that time. The other group is Capella Bydgostiensis established in 1962, one of the first groups in Poland to present ancient music using instruments of the period and their replicas. The output of both musical groups in the Pomeranian Philharmonic includes numerous album recordings and foreign tours. Moreover, composers write music especially for them, since both Ignacy Jan Paderewski State Philharmonic Orchestra and Capella Bydgostiensis take part in world premieres of the works of such eminent musicians as Górecki, Kilar, Schaeffer, Twardowski or Penherski. Nobember 16th 1958 is an extremely important date in the more than 50-year-long history of the Pomeranian Philharmonic – when the first concert took place in its newly erected, exceptionally stately edifice. The building, raised through admirable efforts of the Philharmonic’s late long-standing director Andrzej Szwalbe, has an 880-seat concert hall with superb, world-famous acoustics, a 150-seat chamber music hall, and 170-seat concert foyer. It’s 47-pipe mechanical organ, built by the Rieger-Kloss company from Krnov (Czech Republic) is installed in the back of the concert hall stage, spacious enough to hold a grand orchestra and a choir. In the main foyer and side halls one can admire a rich collection of busts of famous composers and unique tapestries custom-woven at  the order of the Philharmonic.

In the main foyer and side halls, you can admire the rich philharmonic collections of sculptural portraits of famous composers and unique tapestries woven at the request of the Philharmonic. The paintings of the outstanding Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński also occupy a significant place.The Pomeranian Philharmonic is today one of the leading music institutions in the country. It has two full-time artistic groups. The Pomeranian Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra was established in 1946, and its lineage dates back to the interwar period and the then existing City Symphony Orchestra, while Capella Bydgostiensis pro Musica Antiqua, was established in 1962 and was one of the first groups in the country presenting early music on period instruments and their copies.
