In 1955, after Stefania Woytowicz’s first successes in Poland, she started touring in Austria, Russia and China. Since then, she had shining successes in concert halls all over the world: in London and Paris, in Stockholm and Moscow, in Holland and Germany, and at the Festival of Edinburgh.
In 1960, the singer, who kept her domicile in Warsaw, undertook a big concert tour to North America. In 1965, she sang a solo part in a symphony of Gustav Mahler at the Salzburg Festival and in 1970 in Lukas-Passion by K. Penderecki. In 1970, she appeared in a concert in Brussels; in 1973 at Maggio Musicale in Florence. Though she didn't appear on stage, she probably did so in television operas. In addition she sang opera music on numerous records. She had a rich formed soprano voice of unusual luminous timbre. She was also am important interpreter of modern music (Berg, Penderecki, Górecki, Baird).
