Varied setups, sophisticated methods, constantly-renewed attempts – these are what define the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s programme which we take to thousands of children all over the country every year. Be it a Cocoa Concert, a Choose Your Instrument event, an open rehearsal or a children’s opera, we turn music’s playfulness, humour, and the inner emotions waiting to be discovered, into a tangible experience. The happy cries, the roaring laughter, the trombones blown at full force, the squeaking violins, the mercilessly-beaten cymbals, all reverberate the programme’s success.
„Miss Anita! Instead of going to football training, I’d like to learn to play the violin!’’ (4th grade schoolchild after Choose Your Instrument)
„Choose Your Instrument was a fantastic experience for the kids – and for us too, of course. My oldest grandchild had wanted to play the flute, but since Sunday the harp seems to have become the clear favourite.”
„I really liked Choose Your Instrument, it rare to see so many radiantly-happy children :) In today’s spiteful, hateful world, this was a truly uplifting experience. If I could, I would go to an event like this every day. Just watching the kids enjoy themselves filled me with so much energy, it was so different from the overburdened atmosphere of school :)”
