On Monday, 26th December 2022, at 7 p.m is the 100-member Gypsy Orchestra, with Guests Károly Peller and Szendy Szilvi will perform a Christmas concert at Kölcsey Központ in Debrecen.
The Gypsy Orchestra is the winner of the Hungarian Heritage and Hungaricum Award, and its achievements to date are worthily preserved in the Golden Book and the Invisible Museum of the Hungarian Spirit.
The world-famous group started 36 years ago and is a classical symphony orchestra and a unique musical formation worldwide. It has given over a thousand concerts in many cities in Africa, America, Asia, Australia, and Europe.
The 100 Pieces Gypsy Orchestra’s artistic work in the field of tradition is invaluable and has no equal in the world. In addition to classical music – including works by Liszt, Bartók, Kodály, Hubay, Erkel, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Sarasate, Strauss – they play traditional Hungarian Gypsy music, Hungarian nota, and folk songs.
From April 2021, the Mayor of the 22nd district, Mr. Ferenc Karsay, and the citizens of Budafok-Tétény will have an excellent opportunity to learn these masterpieces and new pieces, namely a new, modern rehearsal room in the concert hall of the Cziffra György Cultural Centre.
The 100-member Gypsy Orchestra represents a uniquely Hungarian experience
They won the Hungarian Heritage Award in 2000, the same year they were entered into the Guinness Book of Records. Since its foundation, the 100 Member Gypsy Orchestra has released 27 CDs and 5 DVDs, 5 of which have been certified platinum and nine gold.
The orchestra has been included in the Hungaricum Collection as a “world-famous artistic and traditional practice” and is thus entitled to use the title of Hungaricum since 18th March 2014. The Hungaricum designation is a title worthy of distinction, the peak achievement in Hungary
