Prestige for York-based choir Prima Vocal Ensemble
Ewa Salecka, whose York-based choir Prima Vocal Ensemble recently
celebrated its 11th anniversary, has just been awarded a 1st class
Degree in Music and Education, specialising in Conducting, from
the prestigious Szczecin Academy of Arts in Poland.
Normally candidates have to produce and conduct a live concert,
but due to the pandemic Ewa was asked to submit a recording of her
most recent choral/orchestral performance. She chose Prima Vocal
Ensemble performing Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ with the Mowbray Orchestra
in Tadcaster’s Riley-Smith Hall.
One choir member commented,
“Ewa is a brilliant conductor who always brings out the best in
everyone. We’re thrilled to have played a part in her award”.
Busy as ever, Ewa can’t wait to get back to performing and taking
part in music festivals at home and abroad. A perfect example of
the way music draws people together across national boundaries.
