About Philharmonia Hungary

Several pages could be written about this company with nearly 60 years of history and experiences, renewed in 2013, maintained by the Ministry.

Our non–profit company’s aim is to bring classical music to focus for various age groups.

Our work by numbers:

Nationwide, 310.000 people participate on our concerts yearly, among which 280.000 are school aged.

Covering almost the whole country, we organize 1100 concerts at 213 different locations annually.

Being one of the driving forces of classical music life in Hungary, in 2013, we gave thousands of artists (109 ensembles and 329 soloists) the opportunity to perform in our concerts.

…and by words:

We are a company that strives to ensure, that even pupils should feel, that music is a language good to speak. Should it be melodious or philosophic here and there, sometimes serious, sometimes even funny – if you are a part of it, you will be richer. It is a unique journey to discover who you are, it is an adventure with a quizmaster.

Throughout the years, the moderator of  the youths concerts changes the jungle of music into  a beautiful forest full with viable paths and with romantic, sunny glades full of twists and turns, where it is worth wandering, getting lost, being absorbed by, discovering its new nooks even at the age of 90. The youth concerts and family programmes of Philharmonia Hungary are supposed to serve this purpose.

Adults can meet us at our season ticket series (providing sometimes the only option in the musical life in the country), at our international seminars held by professors with worldwide reputation and at our festivals of early and new music.

We support the most talented students with scholarships, and organize the Budapest International Music Competition annually – focusing always on different instruments.

Our slogan ADVENTURE + VALUE tells briefly how we think about music. Join us in our programmes!
