As part of the conference, we are pleased to invite you to attend a concert Symphony for Violin and DJ.

Symphony for Violin and DJ is the leading project of Tomasz Dolski related to broadly understood music education. The project aims to stimulate and develop the sensitivity and imagination of young people, building a world of values. The idea of the project is to present classical music in a modern arrangement to arouse the curiosity of young viewers and encourage them to discover classical music. The main assumption of the project is, as Stefan Szuman put, making art more accessible, its specific adaptation can be more understandable and closer to contemporary audiences. The aim of the project is to achieve the effect defined in the project method as a catalytic event. It is also an attempt to meet the expectations of modern children and youth. As Peter Gouzouasis points out it is about being up to date, about acting in line with current trends. The pandemic situation showed that an online event can be not only a receptive-auditory form but also allows the use of activating methods, e.g. methods of active listening to music. It is also a great opportunity to reflect on contemporary forms of work with a young audience as well as to relax with classical, folk, and pop music in a special form.  The concert program includes both Polish and international hits from classical and popular music (e.g. Chopin, Moniuszko, Vivaldi). All that in the convention of the Symphony for Violin and DJ – contemporary and traditional; with the use of technology, a touch of education, and fun.

Tomasz Dolski is known for his unconventional approach to both the violin and classical music. He is 25. In 2011 in TV program Must be the Music presented one of Mozart’s works that initiated a specific trend at that time to break the barrier between young audience and classical music (similar to Vanessa Mae and David Garrett). He played the concert during the meeting for the General Directors for Training from the European Union during the Polish Presidency of the Union in 2011 organized at the Wieliczka Salt Mine (Poland) by the Ministry of National Education. In 2018 presented his project at one of the largest music festivals in Italy „Imola in Musica”. During the four years Symphony for Violin and DJ watched nearly 150,000 pupils and 4 editions of the project were released. Tomasz Dolski currently works as an active musician, practitioner-pedagogue of education for pupils, and practitioner-theoretician at the Faculty of Education of the University of Warsaw. He graduated from the Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz and Faculty of Education at the University of Warsaw, winner of many awards, performing on the largest Polish stages.
