"The first rehersal took place on June 3rd. The grand premiere was held on June 20th at 6 p.m. local time, i.e. on the first day of summer holidays in Poland. The Choir was initiated by the The Baltic Sea Cultural Centre in Gdansk, Poland within the cultural project "Radunia - Along the Art Current". We collected the complaints of Gdansk inhabitants over a few weeks in April and May via e-mails and via interviews made by a local radio station ESKA. Then those complaints were transformed by the jazz musician Cezary Paciorek and the poet Bozena Ptak into complaints songs.
Yes, we are proud to announce the Gdansk Complaints Choir performed six different songs - each presenting a different music influence ranging from Polish folk to reaggee . All of them, however, express the longings, disappointments and worries of Gdansk citizens. The tunes are very catchy and we hope that at least one of them will become a summer hit.
Gdansk Complaints Choir consists of two "regular" choirs: Non Serio and Chor Mieszczan Gdanskich as well as of many Gdansk citizens who volunteered to join in." English subtitles by Dawid Dorynek.
