We spent a wonderful evening at Müpa on Monday at the debut event of the Swiss Friends Circle of the Budapest Festival Orchestra. The informal reception was opened by Thomas Widmer, Deputy Head of Mission of the Swiss Embassy, who then gave the floor to Orsolya Erdődy, the manager-director of the Orchestra. Before the concert, conductor Iván Fischer also came down to the reception to personally present the concept of the performance. We are happy that we are also succeeding in strengthening Swiss-Hungarian relations on the cultural/artistic front, in which our supporter is our member, Dr. Mónika Molnár.
