Faustyna Hinc

Conductor

She’s an alumnus of the Choral Conducting, Church Music, Arts Education, Eurhythmics and Jazz Departament at the Academy of Music in Gdansk, specialising in music education, and the Cantorial School in Krakow. She is a co-founder of the Cantorial School in Gdansk where she coordinates its operations and teaches some classes.

Her conducting technique was developed under the supervision of Karol Kisiel PhD and Fr. Dawid Kusz OP, and currently she’s being supervised by prof. Aleksandra Grucza-Kowalska at her Alma Mater. She improves her voice production technique under Teresa Pabjańczyk’s supervision, and before that she worked with Olga Trzebicka. Together with a mixed choir of 4th Departament of Academy of Music in Gdansk, conducted by Michał Kozorys, she took part in many choral projects.

From 2016 to 2019 she was a cantor of a Dominican student ministry’s choir in Gdansk, now she is a cantor in a Dominican young adults ministry. On regular basis she conducts the choir of St. Nicola’s church in Gdansk during Christmas, Holy Triduum and other celebrations. At the same time she’s a teacher in a primary school, and also teaches individual and group voice production class both for children and adults. In 2019 her composition to K. I. Gałczyński’s poem “Modesty” was awarded at the 15th Provincial Declamation and Sung Poetry Contest “I like poetry”.

A great influence on her technique had art therapy that she learnt about during her studies at the Academy of Music in Gdansk, and the Cantorial School in Krakow that she attended at the same time – an integral musical development in three spheres: body, soul and spirit. That is why she approaches voice production class, both individual and in a group, in a holistic and integral way.

She’s an active cantor. In her spare time she writes music to psalms and antiphonies, plays ukulele and takes photos with Praktica, her favourite analogue camera.
