About the event:

They’ve already had plenty of concerts with VIRTUOSOS, such as in New York, Milan, Paris, Stockholm, Brussels, Zurich, Tokyo, Osaka, Islamabad, Beijing and Budapest. In Shenzhen, China 214 million people watched Asia Music Festival featuring the talent, Misi Boros. In Szeged, an audience of 6.000 people gave a standing ovation to Soma Balázs-Piri, after playing his piano piece as a guest performer at the concert of Placido Domingo, conducted by the Maestro himself.

VIRTUOSOS, as an idea, movement and organization works for the future of classical music. They shape their journey with the help of these talented musicians featured in this concert, along with many other talents discovered in the previous 5 seasons of the show. They are the new champions of classical music, with their innovative spirit and unique art. We celebrate a great moment of the history of VIRTUOSOS now, performing in Doha, Qatar for the first time, on the 26th of October at the Katara Opera House.
