About the program
There are quite a few among the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s adult season ticket holders who fell in love with live classical music at cocoa concerts in the past. Naturally, their children now form the regular core of the audience of our cocoa concerts. With events of an intimate atmosphere, held on weekend afternoons, the programme has offered children an introduction to the world of music for two decades.
The new season is no different. Iván Fischer and the orchestra welcome children aged 5 to 12 — and of course their parents and grandparents. For the first time, the BFO will now also offer a cocoa concert for children with autism.
These informal, interactive sessions allow Iván Fischer and members of the orchestra to introduce children to the secrets of classical music, and the concerts end with a hot cup of the cocoa that lends its name to these events.
COCOA SEASON TICKET For those really committed concertgoers, this year we have introduced a family version of the cocoa concert season ticket.
