BFO Fundraising Ball

One of the most anticipated moments of the concert season is the Ball of the Budapest Festival Orchestra, where guests can spend a glamorous evening full of music, dance and uplifting experiences with the orchestra's friends and supporters.

The theme of our Ball will be: Black & White

Our fundraising ball will see not only the return of the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s boisterous big band, but will also feature countertenor Reginald Mobley, who sang the role of Ottone in the critically acclaimed The Coronation of Poppea. Appearing as a special guest of the big band, he will show a very different side of himself this time.

Leaving the day-to-day worries behind while enjoying mouth-watering dishes and a sumptuous wine selection, our guests can enjoy exclusive, never-before-heard performances by our musicians and support the orchestra's life-changing community and education programs.

The event is hosted by Iván Fischer.
