MUSICA POLONICA NOVA - Festival of Polish Contemporary Music

Ewa Trębacz, DXARTS Alumna and Research Scientist, was a composer-in-residence at this year’s edition of the Musica Polonica Nova festival in Wrocław, Poland. The festival was held at the state-of-the-art concert venue National Forum of Music, and features a kaleidoscope of works composed by Polish artists in recent years.
