You are invited to visit an exhibition presented on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. On photographs displayed in the Open-Air Gallery at the Agrykoli Street in Warsaw, you will see those, who for years have been strongly committed to their work during successive finals of the Great Orchestra as well as those who benefited from help.
As Jurek Owsiak put it, the exhibition is a sentimental journey in time. - 25 years of playing the Orchestra makes a major part of the Polish history. During this period, we have virtually helped every hospital in our country. The fact that the Orchestra is working, and so efficiently, is owed to all donors; it is the effect of each zloty put in the collection box – said Jurek Owsiak. – I dare to state that the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is a common good of all Poles, including those living abroad, because many collection centres have organised fundraising outside Poland – he added.
The 25th Final of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity will take place on 15 January 2017. In all Poland and in several dozen locations in the world, the Orchestra will collect money for saving life and health of children and the elderly. On this day, everyone who will support the Orchestra will be allowed to visit the Royal Łazienki for free. You just need to show your little red heart of the Orchestra at the entrance to a Museum building.
The exhibition ‘25 Years of Playing the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity’ is organised by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation in co-operation with the Royal Łazienki Museum in Warsaw.
