Oskar Kolberg Świętokrzyska Philharmonic is based in the building of the Kielce Cultural Centre. It continues the tradition of the Kielce Symphonic Orchestra founded in 1933.


Among popular musical events are jazz concerts in Tomasz Zieliński’s mansion, concerts of classical music from the series “The Castle Nights” held in the historic interior of the Palace of Kraków Bishops, and the Scouts’ Festival of Culture of School Youth, held every year since 1974. In the summer you can attend concerts of rock and folk music in the city park, or sea shanties on the artificial lake.


The Concert Brass Band of the Świętokrzyska Philharmonic was founded in 1996 and works under the direction of Jan Tokarz, a French horn player of the Świętokrzyska Philharmonic. The orchestra plays popular music, famous hits of the 20th century, soundtrack music, and classical music too. The orchestra performs in Kielce, in holiday and health resorts and in schools.

Salon Music Ensemble “Animato” was started in 1991 by the violinist and violin teacher Andrzej Zuzański. The ensemble is mostly made up of musicians connected with the Świętokrzyska Philharmonic. The repertoire of “Animato” consists mainly of waltzes, csardases, polkas, marches, suites, gallops and soundtrack music.
