(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- On October 8, 2023, the Hungarian Advisory Ministry presents The Fight for Freedom Concert at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC). With this concert, we remember the 67th anniversary of the Hungarian 1956 freedom fight and revolution where the Hungarian people fought for their freedom. The concert begins at 4:00pm.
We remember the heroes with a classic concert featuring three young and very talented musicians accompanied by a 38-member professional symphonic orchestra.
Soloists include 18-year-old Violinist Gwyneth Gherzan, Soprano singer Tünde Petrovici, and Pianist HsinYi Tsai. The pieces presented are all original works composed by the conductor, Marius Marton. As the audience listens they are taken on a journey in which they can feel the joys of freedom and the sorrows of loss through music.
Tickets range from $30-$70 and are available for purchase online. This performance lasts approximately 2 and will have one 20-minute intermission. Recommended age: 10+
