Thanks to First National Bank for sponsoring this performance!
The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, regarded as one of the greatest folkloric dance ensembles in the world, was established in 1951. The company collects and plays authentic folk music and aims to preserve the folk dances and traditional costumes of Hungary and Hungarian-inhabited areas by putting them on stage.
The Ensemble has performed in 44 countries across four continents and has won the admiration of an audience of more than seven and a half million people. In the last few years, the Ensemble has encountered special interest in North-America; the company received its fourth invitation to participate in a three-month American tour in 1994. The company has also toured the Far East and Western Europe.
