About the Event

The 28th MUSIC‐WINE celebration has already become a tradition, where every year on December 30, the world's one and only 100 Member Gypsy Orchestra gives a grand gala concert.

100 musicians play at the same time on the grand concert, performing popular melodious tunes while the audience is tasting selected outstanding wines of Hungarian wineries.

This year we continue the tradition, treating our guests to famous operetta excerpts of Ferenc Lehár and Imre Kálmán with performances by distinguished operetta soloists. The show will conclude with the inevitable 'Pacsirta' and the Radetzky march, conducted by the principal violinist József Lendvai Csócsi.

A special feature of the evening will be a wine tasting during the interval, where the audience will be able to taste excellent wines from Hungary's selected winemakers and wine cellars. Guests who would like to partake in an epicurean journey along with the concert experience can enjoy savory cold dinner plate with wines or even a four‐course festive dinner accompanying the Orchestra’s unparalleled performance.
Delicious meal, famous wine, splendid show and fantastic milieu, the 100 Member Gypsy Orchestra is looking forward to welcoming those looking for entertainment with a gala program and wine tasting on December 30th., at the Budapest Congress Center.

    Gala concert of the 100 Gypsy Violins was excellent with the previous wine tasting and Folk Dance show. Program was deluxe. My warm recommendation.

    C'était un magnifique concert avec une partie tzigane, l'autre classique. De très bons musiciens, complices qui vous emmènent dans leur joyeux tourbillon : on aurait presqu'envie de danser ! Dîner excellent et vins exquis. .

    Très agréable soirée, enthousiasmé par ces musiciens jouant sans partition, mais avec leurs "tripes".

    Jan 2012

    Das Konzert war spitze! Die Weinprobe war okay. Das einzige was wir als sörend empfunden haben, war das Geschirrgeklapper. Im unteren Bereich der Kongresshalle wird das Dinner serviert und das hierfür benötigte Geschirr muss anscheinend ganz nach oben, oberhalb der Balkonplätze transportier, sortiert und gespült werden. Das ist einfach zu laut und stört beim Zuhören der tollen Musik.
