Gala Concert of the 100 Member Gypsy Orchestra
December 30, 2023
The 27th MUSIC-WINE celebration has already become a tradition, where every year on December 30, the world's one and only 100 Member Gypsy Orchestra gives a grand gala concert.
100 musicians play at the same time on the grand concert, performing popular melodious tunes while the audience is tasting selected outstanding wines of Hungarian wineries.
This year we continue the tradition, treating our guests to famous operetta excerpts of Ferenc Lehár and Imre Kálmán with performances by distinguished operetta soloists. The show will conclude with the inevitable "Pacsirta" and the Radetzky march, conducted by the principal violinist József Lendvai Csócsi.

A special feature of the evening will be a wine tasting during the interval, where the audience will be able to taste excellent wines from Hungary's selected winemakers and wine cellars. Guests who would like to partake in an epicurean journey along with the concert experience can enjoy savory snacks or even a four-course festive dinner accompanying the Orchestra's unparalleled performance.
