Conclusions

  • The conference participants approved the document (CCC Regulations Chart)
  • It was agreed that CCC congresses should take place approximately every eighteen months and should be held in Poland, on account of its special role as Chopin’s homeland and the numerous places associated with the composer
  • It was suggested that the dates of future congresses be linked to other events, such as the ‘Chopin and his Europe’ festival or a congress of the World Federation of Chopin Societies
  • It was considered appropriate not only to publish a list of participants on the CCC website, but to accompany the names with photographs. Hence the request to submit your photographs
  • The question was raised of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute helping to promote prize-winners of the competitions represented at the conference. The Institute’s representatives declared their readiness to help, depending on the financial possibilities and the capacity of the concert series organised by the Institute
