After completing his master’s degree in management in 2005 at the Warsaw School of Economics, Szymon Kaça decided to focus his energies on music.
Based in Paris since 2006, he completed a Master in Music Pedagogy (specialising in clarinet) at the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw (2008) and a postgraduate diploma at the Boulogne Billancourt Conservatory (2011).
His interest in contemporary music led him to work with the clarinettists Jean-Max Dussert and Ernesto Molinari and the composers Alberto Posadas, Jean-Luc Hervé, Jean-Marc Singier and Philippe Hersant, among others.
Szymon Kaça has performed in the festivals, Voix Nouvelles at the Abbey of Royaumont, Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik in Darmstadt, Ars Musica in Brussels, Etchings in Auvillar and in Villa Concordia in Bamberg, with ensembles such as East Coast Contemporary Ensemble, 2e2m and Le Balcon. He also played as a soloist with the Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra in Białystok (Poland) and has recently played a French premiere of a bass clarinet solo piece, Georges Aperghis’s Damespiel.
Besides his passion for the interpretation of contemporary music, Szymon Kaça is particularly interested in tango. He has worked with internationally renowned dancers and he also plays the bandoneon.
Szymon Kaça teaches the clarinet at the Ivry-sur-Seine and Vaires-sur-Marne Conservatory.
