Danubia Orchestra Plays For Hearing-Impaired In Budapest On 28 August
From February to May this local orchestra commemorates Beethoven’s 250th anniversary with a unique artistic endeavour: the ensemble is bringing music to those who most share the misery of the legendary composer: people living with hearing loss.

In a series of concerts, the orchestra employs a selection of physical instruments and special aids that transmit the vibration of sounds, enabling audiences who are hard on hearing to experience music in a particular way.

These appliances include special contact speakers and other devices, and the audience can even choose to sit on stage among the musicians. Budapest Music Center hosts the concerts of Beethoven Project from February to May.

The Danubia Orchestra, based in Budapest’s District 3, aims to share high-quality classical music with the widest audience possible. Led by Artistic Director and conductor Máté Hámori, the ensemble utilizes novel and innovative artistic approaches, enabling the younger generations to experience and reimagine the classical genre.

Free, pre-registration is required at the Danubia Orchestra’s web site.

Date and time:
Friday, 28 August, 10 am

Budapest Music Center
