On scene

Our Academic Choir of the University of Warsaw gathered 12,5 milllion viewers once. It was one-of-a-kind performance – opening ceremony of UEFA Euro 2012 in National Stadium in Warsaw. Choir members performed ‘Dąbrowski’s Mazurka’ and ‘Imnos eis tin Eleftherian’. They also recorded anthems of countries that participated in the competition.

But singing is not the only passion that you can maintain while studying at UW. We also have a dance ensemble and a theatre.
