- Kordegarda CHOPIN 2010
At the time of Fryderyk Chopin’s birth, Żelazowa Wola belonged to the parish of Brochów, where, in Saint Roch’s Church, the composer was baptised and where first his parents and later his sister Ludwika got married.
In the summer of 1828, Fryderyk Chopin spent his holidays at Konstanty Pruszak's, his schoolmate, home at the Palace in Sanniki, Poland. In his letter to his friend, Tytus Woyciechowski, Chopin wrote: "(...) I was in Sanniki at the Pruszaks', I spent the whole summer there (…) I reworked the last Rondo C major for two pianos and practiced it today".
The Visitationist Church in Warsaw, where young Fryderyk Chopin performed on organ, underwent massive external renovation in relation to the 200th anniversary of birth of the composer.
The multimedia project "Chopin Benches" (pl. "Ławeczki Chopina") realised in 2009 by the authorities of Warsaw constitute one of the most interesting initiatives of the Jubilee Year promoting the capital of Poland as the home city of the composer.
Polish towns and cities have launched construction and renovation works in their concert halls. The large-scale renovations will produce attractive, modern spaces fit to suit different musical and teaching purposes.
