Paweł Szczepański

Born in 1966 in Warsaw. He began to play the French horn at the age of eleven at the Karol Szymanowski Secondary Music School in Warsaw, completing his study under the tutelage of Krzysztof Specjał in 1984. He then continued his education at the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw in the class of Professor Jan Jeżewski.

In 1984 he took part in an international music camp in Interlochen (United States), where he was a member of the World Youth Symphony Orchestra and studied with the renowned American French horn player William Ver Meulen.

His excellent performance at the graduation diploma concert was rewarded by an invitation to perform three concerts with the National Philharmonic Orchestra in Warsaw under the direction of Jose Maria Florencio Junior in 1990.
Paweł Szczepański has been a member of the Polish Chamber Orchestra / the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra since 1982, where he is the first French horn player and soloist. He performed as soloist with the orchestra under the direction of Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Jan Krenz and Volker Schmidt-Gertenbach in prestigious concert halls in Vienna, Madrid, Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, as well as in other cities in Europe.

He has been a lecturer of the Sinfonia Varsovia Academy, a project intended to refine the playing skills of orchestra musicians.

Paweł Szczepański was awarded the Medal of Merit in the Service of Polish Culture by the Minister of Culture (2004) and the Diploma from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage (2015).
