Conductor, La Maestra 2022 1st Prize and Génération Opéra special prize
As Le Devoir notes, Anna Sułkowska-Migoń is a conductor whose name must necessarily be remembered. She stands out for her sensitivity, sincerity, and brilliant talent. Her energetic charm is comparable to world-class conductor Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla (Le Monde). The winner of the prestigious La Maestra Competition in Paris (2022), the Taki Alsop Fellowship Award Recipient of 2022-2024 as well as the “Young Promoter of Poland” award recipient in the culture category (2022), she has collaborated with orchestras in Poland and abroad.
In the artistic season 2022/23, the young artist will conduct the Paris Mozart Orchestra on tour (France, Belgium), the Orquestra de La Comunitat Valenciana on tour (Spain), concerts with the Southbank Sinfonia in London, the Oregon Bach Festival (USA), the Dresdner Philharmonie, the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, the National Philharmonic in Warsaw, the National Forum of Music in Wroclaw and the Krakow Philharmonic, among others.
As part of the National Institute of Music and Dance scholarship in the Conductor-in-Residence program, she collaborated with the Jerzy Semkow Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra (2021/2022) and the Lower Silesian Philharmonic (2020/2021). She also received the Noel Minet Fund Scholarship for choirmasters (2021).
Anna Sułkowska-Migoń has participated in conducting masterclasses with Marin Alsop and the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, as well as with David Reiland, François-Xavier Roth, Josep Vila i Casañas, and Michalis Economou. Having begun the conducting training under the guidance of her father Piotr Sułkowski, she developed her skills during assistant conducting projects with Klaus Mäkelä, Marek Pijarowski, Paweł Przytocki and Antoni Wit. She worked with the Orchestre de Paris, Paris Mozart Orchestra, Athens Philharmonia Orchestra, Warmian-Masurian Philharmonic Orchestra, and Podkarpackie Philharmonic Orchestra. She graduated from the Krzysztof Penderecki Academy of Music in Cracow in two majors: symphonic conducting in the class of Łukasz Borowicz and choral conducting in the class of Lidia Matynian and Andrzej Korzeniowski.
