The National Youth Choir in Kecskemét

26. July 2018

The Kodály Institute of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music was given the opportunity to organise the National Youth Choir for the Kodály Memorial Year 2017. The term ‘national’ refers, on the one hand, to the fact that young people from Hungary were joined by Hungarian singers from outside the country, and, on the other hand, to the aim to achieve high artistic quality. Members were selected by the chorus masters Professors Péter Erdei and László Norbert Nemes, based on the recordings the candidates had submitted and on the auditions they took part in. After a week of intensive rehearsals in Kecskemét, the Choir had performances in Keszthely, Vienna, Galanta and Budapest. On 27 July the Choir is coming to a final performance at the Catholic Church in Kecskemét.
