The trio of Piotr Domagała and Kinga Rataj will perform for viewers gathered at the Kielce Culture Centre on Thursday, 21 September. The performance about Krzysztof Komeda Trzciński "Before the Day Comes Up" was cancelled for reasons beyond the organisers' control

The 21st Memorial to Miles Festival has been organised by Targi Kielce and the Kielce Cultural Centre; again the event promises to be outstanding. From 21 to 24 September, artists who have gained fame and appreciation in Poland and Europe will perform at the Kielce Culture Centre.  The legendary Jan Ptaszyn Wróblewski, Włodek Pawlik and Marek Pospieszalski's octet offer moving and surprising performances. There will also be representatives of the new jazz wave - the Skalpel duet with its electro sounds and the English Yazz Ahmed Quartet.  One of the main stars of the festival is Dorota Miśkiewicz, featuring her new project - a duet with the Brazilian guitarist Toninho Horta. The event was to begin with the performance "Before the Day Breaks";  however, it had to be cancelled. The organisers invite you to a screening of a thriller by a renowned director with live music. 


"The Lodger" is one of Alfred Hitchcock's first films in which his directorial skills are definitely visible. Using simple means, he was able to create a moving atmosphere of impending misfortune and brilliantly portray the environment of London's lower classes. The action is packed with suspence from the very first minutes - a serial killer is loose in the city and kills young, fair-haired women every Tuesday. Meanwhile, a mysterious man arrives at the Bunting house, looking for a room to rent...


The film atmosphere certainly is enhanced by live music performed by respected artists. Jazz guitarist from Kielce  - Piotr Domagała is the creator of original musical projects combining jazz, contemporary music and folk. He presented his music on many European and Polish stages. On Thursday, 21 September, he will be accompanied by trumpeter Adam Kawończyk, drummer and accordionist Oleg Dyyak and Kinga Rataj, a singer known for her passion for fado sounds.


The screening of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Lodger" with live music will start on Thursday, 21 September at the KCK Grand Concert Hall at 7 p.m. Tickets available at the KCK box office and on kck.bilety24.pl   

Tickets previously purchased for the "Before the Day Comes Up" performance are still valid and can be used for the screening of the film "The Tenant".
