Maestro Piotr Gajewski is one of a select group of American conductors equally at home in nearly all musical genres. He has conducted many important world premiers.
He is also a winner of many prizes and awards, among them a prize at New York's prestigious Leopold Stokowski Conducting Competition and, in 2006, Montgomery County's Comcast Excellence in the Arts and Humanities Achievement Award.
In 2013, the President of Poland bestowed him with Poland's Knight's Cross of the Order of Merit.
A true Renaissance man, when away from music Gajewski continues to play competitive soccer, holds a law degree and a license to practice law in two states, and from 2007-2011 served on his hometown (Rockville, Maryland) City Council.
