    Your evening concert takes place at Pesti Vigadó or Danube Palace, a splendid neo-baroque-style concert hall in Budapest. A host will direct you to your seat in the front or middle rows of the intimate theater for the start of the Danube Symphony Orchestra concert.

    Formed in 1961, the Danube Symphony Orchestra has become a sensation throughout Europe, with a repertoire that covers almost every musical style, from baroque music to modern music of the 20th century. What's unique about this orchestra is that they perform famous classical melodies accompanied by the cimbalom, a typical Hungarian instrument played by striking two beaters against a range of strings. You can only enjoy this type of sound in Hungary!

    Along with music from the Danube Symphony Orchestra, the Budapest Gala Concert includes performances by ballet dancers, Budapest Operetta Theatre and a Hungarian folk band. A solo performance by a singer from Hungary's Virtuosos Talent Show also takes place.

    Every concert consists of two parts, between 40 and 45 minutes each (see sample program below). During the intermission, you can have a drink at the bar, purchase DVDs of the Danube Symphony Orchestra or browse Hungarian souvenirs.
