Music and Dance performances:
House of Hungary regularly invites classical and folk musicians, dance groups from Hungary to promote the Hungarian culture. Lately they organized concerts with the Bartok and Kodaly Quartets, Endre Hegedus pianist, with Kalman Balogh Gypsy Cimbalom Band, the Budapest Dancers.
This event takes place every year on August 20, or the Sunday that is closest to that date. This day is significant because it is in memory of the first King of Hungary, King Stephen I (St. Stephen). The entertainment is usually provided by the “Karpatok Folkdance Ensemble” from Los Angeles and Joann and Joe Semegi from Sun City to entertain the crowd with beautiful Hungarian folk dances and songs.
