Music shall prevail – forever and always
Regardless of history and politics
East and West, North and South
Whatever the latitude and longitude
For music is a metaphysical phenomenon – an eternal birthright,
A constituent fragment of the human soul.

Professor Zbigniew Brzeziński, advisor to US Presidents, and Jan Nowak Jeziorański, the legendary Courier from Warsaw

Having steered the Orchestra through its history together with his father since 1989, director Jacek Łepecki, the son of the Orchestra's Patron, had to carry on with his task alone from 2001 onwards, taking the helm of a time-honoured institution which rests upon the strong foundations of family traditions that spans across generations and which has, through its lasting achievements, earned its reputation as one of the pillars of national culture through the promotion thereof in Poland, in Europe and worldwide.

For, as His Holiness Pope John Paul II has once said:

Culture is a form of self-expression of mankind and a way in which man can reassert his very humanity. For it is man who brings culture into being, and as he does so, through this culture he creates his very own self, an act of self-inception accomplished through an inner labour of the spirit, the mind, the will and the heart. Yet he does not create it alone – he brings it to life in conjunction with others. Culture is an expression of communication between people, of common thought and common action. It is forged for the sake of the common good, becoming the fundamental commodity of the communities that comprise humankind. Culture is, first and foremost, the common heritage of the nation that creates it, and so, for example, Polish culture is the foundation upon which rests the spiritual existence of all Poles. It is this culture that sets us Poles apart as a nation and determines our actions through our history – a force more potent that any tangible powers and any political boundaries".
