Every day (except Sundays and holidays), the Warsaw Cathedral hosts organ concerts combined with the church underground tours. 

Live concert on the Great Organ of the Cathedral Basilica (duration approx. 30 minutes)

performed by outstanding Polish organists: Przemysław Kapituła, Andrzej Sochocki and Kamil Steć. During each concert you can hear the most famous organ works, among them: compositions by Frederic Chopin – a great Warsaw composer, and a piece by Mieczysław Surzyński – the legendary organist of the Warsaw Cathedral, known within this lifetime as the “Polish Bach”. The Cathedral organ was built in 1987. Featuring 4301 pipes, it is huge, famous and magnificent. That’s why it’s worth listening.
