Four talented young musicians from Hungary took part in the Huygens Festival in Leidschendam-Voorburg from September 21st to 24th, 2023. This group traveled from both Szeged and Budapest and performed two times during the festival.
Their inaugural performance took place on September 21st at the Old Church in Voorburg during the opening concert. The musicians showcased their skills on the cello, violin, and harp, treating the audience to enchanting classical pieces. The Ambassador of Hungary H.E. Mr. András Kocsis graced the event with his presence and, in his speech, extended a warm welcome to the Hungarian participants. He also commended the festival’s emphasis on music as a universal language.
Following the opening concert, these Hungarian talents, in collaboration with other music ensembles from the Netherlands, Flanders, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, engaged in a masterclass program. This preparation was aimed to prepare for a joint international performance at the closing concert of the festival on 24 September.
The Hungarian participation at the Huygens Festival was supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary.
