The Kuwait Chamber Philharmonia|
KCP was established in 1992 by Cezary Owerkowicz and Witold Wnuk. The programmes presented so far have
reflected the works of the great European composers and Kuwaiti
musicians and have featured international as well as local artistes.
In 1993 The Philharmonia has moved into another phase of its
development, involving regular monthly concerts at the RADISSON SAS
HOTEL, whose help and support has been exceptional. Concerts have
been very well attended and in most cases sold out; the combination
of the venue, the performers, the programmes and their organization,
together with the support from our audience have contributed to
successful and exciting years.
In 2016 The Philharmonia started
also cooperation with HILTON KUWAIT RESORT.
The success of
the first years has also brought with it a vision of the future. The
vision is shared not only by the founders of the Kuwaiti Chamber
Philharmonia but also by music lovers across the length and breadth
of society in Kuwait, - to help build for future generations in
Kuwait, a National Philharmonic Orchestra. The enormity of this
undertaking, and its implications on the social, cultural and
related economic framework of Kuwait has been appreciated, thus it
is by no means a short-term goal. Neither can this goal be realized
without the combined support of the private and public sectors and
of individual music lovers.
Through the common language of
music, the Kuwait Chamber Philharmonia hopes to establish additional
bonds of understanding and friendship in the multi-cultural society
This will have far reaching implications for the
future of music and musicians in the State. Up to date KCP have
organized around 150 concerts
