A Foundation for a Concert Hall

The foundation was originally established in 1997 by the director and teachers of the Leo Weiner Secondary School and Gymnasium of Music. Their goal was a concert hall in Buda and the optimal placement of the school in one building. The problems of the school building are still unresolved. Zoltán Göllesz took over the representation of the foundation in 2003. The foundation then performs an existing concert hall as its main activity from an operational point of view.

Nádor Hall

In the Nádor Hall in Budapest (concert hall in the building of the Primary School for the Blind). The Budapest School for the Blind is a unique educational institution for the visually impaired in the world, with a constantly operating concert venue. The hall has boasted about 2,600 concerts since December 1995. In the Nádor Hall, young artists with talented artists and promises perform at the forefront of a Hungarian musical life. In addition to classical authors, the concert hall's repertoire typically includes early music and baroque performances, as well as contemporary works. The Palatine creates an important feature, so - providing a general degree of operation - with spectacularly favorable conditions for adult performers, which allows for its proper program, and a visually impaired can visit for free.

Hungarian Handel Society

The Hungarian Händel Society was formed on April 14, 2009, on the 250th anniversary of the death of a great composer, in a Nádor Hall in Budapest. The company is not independent. It operates within the framework of the Foundation for a Concert Hall.

Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra

Only for two decades did he collaborate with the Palatine Hall and the Hungarian Virtuosos Chamber Orchestra. Currently, the Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra is the resident art ensemble of the hall. The leader of the band is also the artistic director of the Nádor Hall.

Contemporary composers

Our old practice, so during contemporary authoring operations, is to put it on a simple show in our own concerts. That’s why in 2016, we launched the foundation’s audio and video recordings as a publisher, as well as the release of sheet music.

“Üdvözöljük a jelenlévőket és a hallgatókat a Nádor teremben, az egykori kápolnában,amely az elmúlt években a kultúra temploma lett.”
