In the series of Matinée Concerts starting in the autumn of 2016, known figures from artistic life will be making their own personal musical statements about the passion that links them to their own genres and the area of music that they work in. It is their undisguised intention to touch both the children and adults sitting in the audience as they speak, at this encounter, about everything that they attach so much passion to.
I still vividly remember that Sunday when my mother fir...st took me up to the organ loft. The organist, "Uncle” Laci Draskóczy, very kindly received us and sat me down beside him at the organ bench. I must have been around 12, and I could just stare in amazement at the numerous couplers, manuals, pedals, and that one special pedal that looked like the gas pedal in the No. 5 bus. I also noticed that the score in front of dear old Laci showed a melody, but he was also adding in other parts. This had me completely awed, and that's when I decided that I had to study this as well. From then on, the only places we'd go for our holidays were those where there was an opportunity to play an organ. There were times when I would lose myself beside the organ for five or six hours at a time, because I wanted to solve every task that I'd set for myself right away. Organ playing became my passion.
Between 9.45 and 10.30, we will be running a free educational music and drama session for children in the Lecture Hall entitled Tune-Up. We look forward to welcoming groups and individuals who hold tickets to the subsequent performance. Please apply in advance via firstname.lastname@example.org, specifying the exact number of participating children and their ages. (The session will take place with a minimum of 6 children)
