As Le Devoir notes, Anna Sułkowska-Migoń is a conductor whose name must necessarily be remembered. She stands out for her sensitivity, sincerity, and brilliant talent. Her energetic charm is comparable to world-class conductor Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla (Le Monde). The winner of the prestigious La Maestra competition in Paris (2022), The Taki Alsop Fellowship Award Recipient of 2022-2024, Coryphaeus of Polish Music award recipient in the category Discovery of the year (2022) as well as the Young Promoter of Poland award recipient (2022), she has collaborated with orchestras in Poland and abroad. In the artistic season 2022/23, the young artist will conduct the Paris Mozart Orchestra tour (France, Belgium), the Orquestra de La Comunitat Valenciana tour (Spain), concerts with the Southbank Sinfonia in London, the Oregon Bach Festival (USA), the Dresdner Philharmonie, the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, the National Philharmonic in Warsaw, the National Forum of Music in Wroclaw and the Krakow Philharmonic, among others. As part of the National Institute of Music and Dance scholarship in the Conductor-in-Residence program, she collaborated with the J.Semkow Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra (2021/2022) and the Lower Silesian Philharmonic (2020/2021). She also received the Noel Minet Fund Scholarship for choirmasters (2021). Anna Sułkowska-Migoń has participated in conducting master classes with Marin Alsop and the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, as well as with D. Reiland, F.-X. Roth, J. Vila, Casanas, and M. Economu. Having begun the conducting training under the guidance of her father P. Sułkowski, she developed her skills during assistant conducting projects with K. Mäkelä, J. Maksymiuk, M. Pijarowski, P. Przytocki, and A. Wit. She worked with the Orchestre de Paris, the Paris Mozart Orchestra, the Athens Philharmonia Orchestra, the Warmian-Masurian Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Podkarpackie Philharmonic Orchestra.
She graduated from the K. Penderecki Academy of Music in Cracow in two majors: symphonic conducting in the class of Ł. Borowicz and choral conducting in the class of L. Matynian and A. Korzeniowski. In 2019, Anna earned a bachelor’s degree at The Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Piotr Sułkowski’s orchestra conducting class and a Master’s Degree in viola, at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in the class of Piotr Reichert and Katarzyna Budnik.
Anna is the initiator of many social initiatives. As an instructor of the Scouting Association of the Republic of Poland, she was involved not only in organizing scout camps, but also in taking care of promoting musical culture among young people. She is the originator and coordinator of the “Scouting Song” project – a music album published on the occasion of the Year of Scouting in Poland (2018) with scout songs arranged in a new, jazz version; the project was co-financed by the National Center for Culture. In Kraków, at the Variete Theater, she organized the concert “Scout Jazzy” in 2018 & 2019 with the National Cultural Center and the Marshal’s Office of the Małopolska Region. In 2019, she collaborated on the creation of Magdalena Miśka-Jackowska’s film music program “Play it again” on the RMF Classic Radio.
In addition to music, she is passionate about travel and reportage literature. In her free time, she goes hiking in the mountains and plays tennis.
