Gala concert

Saturday, the 20th of August, 8pm

Margaret Island Open-air Stage

This spring the world’s first ever classical music talent show had its second run in the Hungarian Television, and just like last year, the freshly discovered young talents will give a gala concert on St. Stephen’s Day, when we celebrate the foundation of the Hungarian state.

This unique and very popular talent show, in which participants compete in three age groups, not only offers a unique opportunity to young talents, but also brings classical music to thousands of homes. Since the show's end, the exceptional talents of Virtuosos have proven their skills on many occasions, delighting audiences all over the country.

Fireworks for St. Stephen’s Day will be live-streamed during the pause.
