The National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1935 in Warsaw as the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra. The team was created and led to 1939 by Grzegorz Fitelberg. After the war, in March 1945 the orchestra was reactivated in Katowice by Witold Rowicki. In 1947, Grzegorz Fitelberg became artistic director again and the band took the name of the Great Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Formerly the seat of the orchestra was located in the Center of Culture Katowice Krystyny Bochenek, at Plac Sejmu Śląskiego 2.

The new headquarters has two concert halls: a large one for 1,800. places and intimate for 300 people. In 2014, they listened to 152 thousand concerts. 219 people.
