The Gabrieli Choir, which has a repertoire from the 16th century to the present day, is a welcoming multinational group which plans to hold concerts in Budapest and Esztergom.
It rehearses once a week on Sundays (5:30 – 8 p.m.) in the centre of Budapest.
The Gabrieli Choir is a Budapest-based amateur chamber choir that rehearses in English and Hungarian. It was re-formed in 2005 by Richard Sólyom to specialise in the performance of sacred works drawn from the music of Anglican cathedrals.
Today, whilst this continues to be a part of its repertoire, it has broadened its scope to include “classical” works – sacred and secular – from all eras.
The choir was previously led by its founder Richard Sólyom, and then by Alastair Cameron.
In 2021, after a two-year break, the Gabrieli Choir resumed its activities, and now has two cooperating conductors: Zsófia Soós and Márk Szabó.
The choir comprises around 20 to 25 singers, representing a wide variety of musical backgrounds. Some are trained musicians or music students, while others simply enjoy learning and performing new music in a chamber choir environment in their spare time.
