Free Outdoor Mini Concerts Bring 'Magic Of Music' To Budapest This Summer
Season six of 'Musical Budapest', held this year between 2 July – 27 August, aims to bring the magic of music to Budapest’s key historical venues.

Previous years saw this series become an inseparable part of the summer season in Budapest - see video below - and this year is set to be outstadning with around 200 mini concerts.

An interactive exhibition of newly designed and manufactured instruments for the community, and several high-quality musical films featuring almost a hundred artists are fresh elements of this initiative in 2020.

Venues include the 'Musical Well' on Margaret Island, the Castle Garden Bazaar and several places in Buda Castle, the wonderful surroundings of the Hungarian National Museum, Millenáris Park, and the newly opened Cultural Salon in Hegyvidék.

The programmes feature some of the most beautiful compositions in the history of music, and are arranged to fit with the history of each building involved.

The performing musicians are members and soloists of Hungary’s most prestigious orchestras and ensembles, and also include the best talents from the up-and-coming generation.

To this day, 'Musical Budapest' remains a unique initiative in the world, keeping classical values alive and presenting musical culture in a very worthy way among the beautiful buildings of the Hungarian capital.

Here's a varied selection of what you can enjoy this summer starting from 2 July - the full schedule can be found here.
