The Budapest Strings ensemble has been holding pedagogical concert sessions in Müpa Budapest's Glass Hall for some years. This season, the well-known music and pedagogic specialist Tamás Lakner will be welcoming the children to the introductory sessions, entitled Music Stool. In addition to his university career, Tamás Lakner has led the Béla Bartók Male Choir Pécs as its conductor since 1980 and has been playing music for almost half a century as a founding member of the Szélkialtó Ensemble, which performs sung poems.

The first Music Stool afternoon will see popular pieces of music transport us to places near and far via the train and ship of the Budapest Strings: from China to Argentina, and from Turkey to the United States. Interactive sessions and creative games await children between the ages of 5 and 14.

Age: 5-14 year
Presented by: Budapest Strings
