Every year, hundreds of choir singers from all over the country and even beyond our borders gather to sing some of the most significant works of music literature under the direction of Gábor Hollerung, after months of preparation and an intensive rehearsal weekend together. This initiative is driven by a passion for singing, which is so important in the life of amateur choirs that it was even possible to make it happen last year.

This time, the 400 or so singers will be performing Mendelssohn‘s oratorio Elijah, a worthy continuation of and successor to the great Baroque oratorios. It is characterised by an extraordinary richness of melody, exciting dramaturgy and huge, operatic choral tableaus. The concert promises to be a feast for the audience and the performers alike.
