Slav of the Week – Milena Witkowska
Written by Adela Skowronski on January 12, 2021
Milena was one of the youngest musicians in her category at the Newport Virtuosi International Music Competition
This teenager is the youngest person yet to win our prestigious “Slav of the Week” award here on the Afternoon Show! 😉
Milena Witkowska wowed judges at the 2020 International Music Competition with her interpretation of the famous Haydn Cello Concerto in C major. She competed against students all around the world in the category of cellists ages 14-16… and despite being one of the youngest in her age group, managed to snag first place.
Milena is currently a student at the Fredryk Chopin Music School in Gdansk. Hopefully this first place win will be the first of many in Milena’s musical career! 🙂 And I have to say – she chose a great instrument to pursue.
