Michał Dembiński was born in 1988 in Tarnow. He studied at the Fryderyk Chopin Music University in Warsaw, in the song class of professor Włodzimierz Zalewski. Since he was eight years old, Michał has been associated with Tarnow’s Pueri Cantores Tarnovienses cathedral choir, under the direction of Rev. Prof. Andrzej Zając. For three years Michał Dembiński was the member of Society for Supporting Theatre Initiatives, as an actor, scriptwriter and co-author of several performances, both for children and adults.
One of the originators and co-founders of the Concentus male ensemble focused on performing Renaissance polyphonies, the music of early Baroque, but also pieces at the borderland of the light popular music (the interwar period). As a soloist, he performed throughout the country and abroad. An important place in his artistic activity has been occupied by chamber music, especially the works of Franz Schubert and other composers of the Romantic era.
During his studies Michał debuted at The Teatr Wielki – National Opera in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by Benjamin Britten. In 2014 he sang at The International Festival of Theatre Arts in Miskolc (Hungary), also in the Britten’s opera – “The Rape of Lucrece”, as Collatinus. Also in 2014 Michał Dembiński was invited to collaborate within “The P Project” in The Teatr Wielki – National Opera, where he took part in “The Victory over the Sun” opera, directed by Krzysztof Garbaczewski. In 2015 he performed at the Malta Festival in “The Magic Mountain” by Paweł Mykietyn, directed by Andrzej Chyra.
On 25th November, 2016 we have witnessed the premiere of the “Moniuszko vol. 2” record, dedicated to the composer’s vocal lyric poetry, which is also the phonographic debut of the artist.
