Budapest Festival Orchestra

Season Opening Gala

Let's get together and create change by music.

We are looking forward to seeing our guests at our Season Opening Gala, one of the greatest celebrations of the season, on 22 September 2018 (Saturday) at 19:00. This year, we will host the event at the orchestra’s rehearsal hall: the site of our chamber music concerts and our home, where BFO musicians prepare for world-renowned festivals and concerts during the season.

The Festival Orchestra attaches tremendous significance to helping children choose an instrument and then learn to play it, which is why we launched our Choose Your Instrument series. Proceeds from the fundraising gala will be used to realise this programme, so that every child has a chance to encounter music and to make their choice.

Book your table with the musicians and the musical director of the Budapest Festival Orchestra!

Those donating 100,000 HUF or more will receive a special VIP present.

Address: Budapest Festival Orchestra Rehearsal Hall (1034 Budapest, Selmeci utca 14-16).

Dress code: black tie
