Things to do in Doha: Experience a Hungarian piano concert

The amazing thing about being in Doha is all the incredible cultural experiences you get to have, most even for free. Amid the myriad things to do in Qatar, there’s an exciting musical event this weekend and you shouldn’t miss it.

Katara, in cooperation with the Hungarian Embassy in Qatar and the National Cultural Fund of Hungary, is hosting a Hungarian piano concert at its Opera House on Saturday October 26.

The performers, Misi Boros and Soma Balazs-Piri are part of Virtuosos, a show and an organisation that works for the future of classical music. With concerts in places such as New York, Milan, Paris, Stockholm Brussels, Zurich, Tokyo, Osaka, Islamabad, Beijing and Budapest, Virtuosos has featured talented musicians across five seasons of its shows.

Boros, winner of season one, and Balazs-Piri, winner of season four, will perform live at Katara Cultural Village’s Building 16 at 7pm.

Boros was born in 2003 and started to play his own tunes on his brother’s piano at the age of four. After winning numerous competitions, he has given countless performances all over the world at such a young age.

Balazs- born in 2004, had been studying the piano for six years only but he surprised his entire family when he won several competitions in Hungary and outside, too.

We can’t wait for the prodigies to introduce us to some Hungarian classical music. Entry is free but registration is required on Katara's website.
Free. Oct 26, 7pm. Building 16, Opera House, Katara Cultural Village, bit.ly/2oRHuR3.
