Understanding Music

Gábor Hollerung has paid particular attention to youth musical education and to educating the concert visiting generation of the future all over his career. Both as a conductor and teacher, he got fame for his suggestive and elementary performing style, his entertaining and humorous rehearsals within and beyond the country borders.

Assisted by his orchestra, Gábor Hollerung is the head of three youth concert series focusing on, among others, explanations by the conductor. (Understanding Music [Music Academy, family concert series with conductor’s explanations], Understanding Music JUNIOR [Klauzál House, youth concert series with conductor’s explanations for the 10-14 age-group], Becoming a music expert [Klauzál House, concert series for young pupils])
The audience is not left alone without Understanding Music in the summer, either: the concerts, a traditional concomitant with Zemplén Festival, always attract great many enthusiasts to the Cultural House in Sárospatak.
