For decades, the members of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra have elected the orchestral musician of the year by secret ballot.
This year’s artist of the year is harpist Deborah Sipkay. We extend our warmest congratulations for earning this recognition!
“It is a marvellous thing to play the harp in the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra! I feel deeply honoured that my colleagues’ choice fell on me this year!
It fills me with pride to be able to join the winners of this distinction from previous years.
The best way for me to show my gratitude is to play at the top of my ability in the concerts of the seasons to come.”
