Warsaw, Poland -

Poland won the first Eurovision Young Musicians that it entered in 1992 and went on to repeat this success in 2000. The country also hosted the competition in 1994 in Warsaw's Philharmonic Concert Hall. This year 19 year old saxophone player Łukasz Dyczko will fly the flag for Poland in Cologne at Eurovision Young Musicians 2016.

Łukasz was born in 1997 and started playing the saxophone at the age of 10. As a child he attended a music school in his home town of Gorlice where he made his debut performing at a Christmas concert. He began his further studies in 2011 at the Karol Szymanowski Secondary Music School in Katowice.

He has won first prize in many international solo competitions such us the international music competition Marco Fiorindo, and the International Saxophone Competition in Wrocław. As a soloist, he has played with the Polish Radio Orchestra, the Silesian Philharmonic and the Krakow Chamber Orchestra. Łukasz has played as part of an octet, quartet, piano trio as well as a duet. "My most joyful experience was participating in Mlody Muzyk Roku 2016, the Polish selection for Eurovision Young Musicians, I was able to meet many fascinating and interesting musicians".

When asked about his dream travel destination, Łukasz only has one stipulation - silence! "I would choose a place that is very silent and where there are a lot of interesting plants, because then I can relax, think about my life, my music and my loved ones".
