The Danubia Orchestra Óbuda represents youthful surge in national classical music ever since it came into existence. It distinguishes itself from other professional orchestras with its innovative initiatives and with its original aspirations of educating the younger generation in the field of music. The orchestra went through a comprehensive renewal in the past three years under the leadership of their artistic manager, Máté Hámori, who enlarged the range of the orchestra with new series of concerts and special youth programs. The concerts of the orchestra are always played for a full house, and more and more of the younger generation are returning audience members, thanks to the innovative reforms of the past years. The orchestra spreads the fame of our country and Óbuda also internationally, last time they gave a highly successful concert in the seat of the Paris Radio in November 2016. It offers more than ninety concerts a year – their series of subscriptions can be listened to at the Academy of Music and in the Budapest Music Center –, they offer opera and juvenile performances, making them one of our country’s most successful symphonic orchestras of the last years.
