We regret to inform you, that Professor Zdzisław Szostak – a composer and conductor from Sosnowiec, has passed away. Maestro has been associated with the Michał Spisak International Music Competition for many years. He was a creator of symphonic, chamber and oratorio music. Professor was not only a good spirit of the competition, but also the creator of songs for the 2nd stage auditions. Despite his age, he was able to watch the presentations of our participants all day! He was always cheerful and willing to give advice. The professor had and still has a place in the Honorary Committee of the competition and will always have place in our hearts.
