    In 1984 Janusz Bieżyński became the leader of the viola section in the newly reactivated Pro Musica Łódź Chamber Orchestra, playing some significant, well-received concerts, including at the Old Masters’ Festival at which he played for the first time in Poland the cycle of Concerti Grossi by Peter Hellendaal, playing them again at the National Philharmonic in Warsaw. After winning national eliminations in 1986, the Łódź Chamber Orchestra travelled to the International Chamber Orchestra Competition in Belgrade.
