The Summer Festival Concerts are the main event of the commune. Organized since 1995 the events accompany The International Festival of Organ and Chamber Music Radom-Oronsko. The aim of the concerts is to give the inhabitants of the commune an opportunity to listen to classical music performed on a high level with its various artistic, instrumental, vocal as well as theatrical values. Our guests were such artists as: Teresa Żylis - Gara, professor Stefan Stuligrosz and "Poznańskie Słowiki" (Poznań Nightingales), Wiesław Ochman, Konstanty Andrzej Kulka, Robert Grudzień, Georgij Agratina, Zbigniew Macias, Józef Skrzek, Krzysztof Penderecki, Maestro Jerzy Maksymiuk and Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra, Krzysztof Kolberger and Jerzy Zelnik. The concerts take place in The Church Of Saint Mary of Częstochowa in Zelów. They are under the patronage of the Archbishop and Metropolitan of Łódz, Władysław Ziółek.

The New Year Concert and the Day of Education are other musical events organized by the Culture House. Among other big stage artists who have visited us in the last years were Michał Bajor, Elżbieta Dzikowska, Tony Halik, Jacek Kaczmarski, Mieczysław Szcześniak, Edyta Geppert, Jacek Borkowski and Krystyna Prońko.

Zelów can pride itself on the only Polish music group 'Zelów Bells' ('Zelowskie Dzwonki') who play the American handbells. They give concerts both in the country and abroad.
