Towers of the Matthias Church in the Buda Castle
The Hungarian Reformed and Evangelical churches will hold a musical, religious and gastronomic event called Protestant Medley on Saturday, the day before Hungary’s founding day, in Buda Castle.
The programs will be held at two venues. In the morning, choirs will perform at the Evangelical Church on Vienna Gate Square, and there will be an interactive music session for children on the biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In the afternoon, the organ marathon will alternate between Reformed and Lutheran artists.
