Let Us Jointly Play for the Late Wanda Wiłkomirska

It is with profound sorrow that we say our final goodbye to Wanda Wiłkomirska. A legendary figure of Polish musical culture, magnificent soloist closely associated with Henryk Wieniawski International Violin Competitions, and holder of honorary membership of Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, she was above all a wonderful person and a true friend.'

This is the obituary we intended to publish in one of the national dailies. On second thought, however, we decided to put the money to a better use. Wanda Wiłkomirska spent the final part of her life at the Veteran Artist Home in Skolimów. In recognition of the excellent care provided for the artist in her autumn years, we have chosen to donate the funds to the Veteran Artist Fund, which runs the Home.

We also encourage you to follow in our footsteps. Should you wish to join us, please annotate your transfer:
'payment for the Veteran Artist Home in Skolimów.'

For contributions, however small, shall eventually evoke more smiles than even the most beautiful, yet short-lived flowers...


The funeral of the late Wanda Wiłkomirska took place on May 15th at the Powązki Cemetery in Warsaw.
