The {oh!} Orkiestra Historyczna was founded in 2012 in the city of Katowice by a group of passionate enthusiasts of early music focused around the concertmaster, Martyna Pastuszka, and the manager, Artur Malke.

The {oh!} Orkiestra Historyczna is, above all, an ensemble of young passionate professional artists with strong bonds with Upper Silesia, whose aim is to take early music performance in the region to a new level, becoming its cultural trademark in Poland and abroad.

In their dedication to historically informed performance, the members of the {oh!} Orkiestra never forget about what is most important: making their music reach their audience as fully as possible. Working on every aspect of a work in order to emphasise the rhetorical dimension of music results in concerts whose aim is to achieve excellent communication not only among the performers, but, above all, between the musicians and the audience.
