St. Gellért Festival is organized for the 10th time this year by the Diocese of Szeged–Csanád. The festival is connected to the feast day of martyr St. Gellért, the first bishop of the diocese. This year’s jubilee concert series lasts from 24th September to 1st October 2017, and the audience is hoped to enjoy some really peculiar pieces of classical music experiencing the colourful music life of the city of Szeged.
These masterpieces of classical music are performed according to the newest approaches accepted in European music culture. In the past ten years the festival has offered outstanding artistic, cultural and musical experiences for the old and new generations of the music loving audience.
Supporting young talented musicians has always been an essential goal of the founders of the festival, offering them an opportunity to give solo performances or join the St. Gellért Academy Orchestra.
Thanks to its acoustics and beauty, Dóm Cathedral ensures a special atmosphere for concerts and makes it possible to enjoy classical music at its highest quality.
