Open rehearsal room / Chamber music season ticket 1
Featuring artists of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hungarian National Choir
The Open Rehearsal Room series has been a tradition of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra for many years, and has always been hugely popular. The events for this series do not take place in the usual large concert hall. For these evenings, we invite the audience to the orchestra’s rehearsal room. The artists of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hungarian National Choir have prepared some true musical delights, which will be performed in chamber music configurations. Both the venue and the selection of pieces offer a far more authentic and intimate concert-going experience for the audience.
These occasions are also very special for the artists of our respective groups, as they have the chance to select most of the pieces to be played and also enjoy an opportunity to create a far more direct relationship with the audience.
The series will also have a special new feature for the 2019/20 season. While in recent years members of our orchestra and choir have appeared separately, this season the two groups plan to delight the audience with a joint production.
