The previously announced central event is the concert of the Danubia Symphony Orchestra, at the concert entitled Zenehíd (Bridge of Music).
It is our great pleasure to be partners with the Hungarian Embassy in organizing the event of The Week of Hungarian Culture in Montenegro. It is extremely important that the audience has the opportunity to get to know the Hungarian history and culture through various events and that their performers will also get to know ours. The central even is the concert of the Danubia Symphony Orchestra with their conductor Mate Hamori. Apart from captivating compositions from Hungarian music literature, the orchestra will also perform the music piece Gusle, written by the Montenegrin composer Nina Perovic.
We believe that such artistic bridges are important both for bilateral cooperation and for our European perspective in the field of culture and we are proud that we are able to achieve such high-quality and versatile projects with partners from Hungary. - stated the Festival’s PR service.
