1. Poland has a very special relation to everything connected with MUSIC: If you visit the webpage of Polish Embassy in Germany, you for instance will have a very, very surprising and GREAT catalog of CHOIRS IN POLAND. Or you may go to youtube and type in some searchwords – and will get numerous and fabulous music-results.
2. Around Christmas however you will encounter another speciality which are NATIONWIDE CHARITY-CONCERTS, which build a NATIONAL INSTITUTION.
3. So Buike Music And Science in this anno Domini 2011 picked as special topic for Christmas – “gifts” 3 quite remarkable ORGANS needing RESTAURATION and/or expensive maintenance-routine. (Besides: there are QUITE a LOT of Organs in Poland HERE …)
