The Musical Advent Magic concert, organized by Octopus Experience and Zenevarázslat will take place at 7:30 p.m. on November 26 in the Grand Hall of the Music Academy, evoking the holy, intimate atmosphere of Advent.
The Grand Hall will be filled with mesmerizing children's voices, beautiful Christmas carols, and the virtuosity of young talents, making this year's first Eve of Advent memorable.
Despite their young age, Aleksander Simic, Ildikó Rozsonits, and Boglárka Eszter Réti are already internationally sought-after artists in their own right, and the guests will have the opportunity to listen to all three of them on November 26.
Young visual artist Zsófia Horváth will lend a helping hand too, by offering her marvelous Advent-themed painting for auction during the evening. All proceeds will go to two charities in equal parts: the Autistic Art Foundation and the Csodalámpa (Magic Lamp) Foundation which fulfills the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening diseases.
All acts will be accompanied by the Central European Concert Orchestra, conducted by the Liszt Prize-winning conductor László Kovács.
Andrea Jádi Németh, founder of Octopus Experience highlighted that "This beautiful evening will be devoted to traditions, togetherness, family heritage, and all those values that we treasure so dearly. Advent is the time of hope and belonging. The three young artists, the children’s choir, and the orchestra will manifest that over a hundred people on stage can make a miracle when they convey strength, courage, and beauty to the audience. I am most grateful to the Academy of Music for making this event possible and for being such an incredible powerhouse for Hungarian and universal art and culture."
The concert will be followed by a reception in honor of the conductors and teachers of the young artists.
