Danubia Orchestra Óbuda was founded in 1993 by Domonkos Héja and his musician friends. At that time, most of them, including the conductor, were students at Bartók Béla Conservatory of Music. As a result of conscious and meticulous professional workshops and regular performances, the orchestra became a renowned actor in the Hungarian music scene. In 2001, the orchestra was granted the title of National Youth Orchestra and could have it for three years. In the subsequent years, the orchestra had several of the best Hungarian an international conductors as guest performers, including Ken-Ichiro, Yuriy Simonov, José Cura, Rico Saccani and Sir Neville Marriner. 2013 was an important turning point in the orchestra’s career when Máté Hámori took over the art direction and provided a new image and strategy to the orchestra.
