Olive Rock

Good morning,good morning everybody!We played our special brand of live background music at beautiful Olive Rock near Wolseley.Everyone exclaimed at how we sound like a small orchestra- not even a string quartet,although we are only three people!Here is a lovely letter from our client:

Dear Gabor, Nerina and Don,

Again a HUGE Thank You for the wonderful event the Hungarian Trio helped create at my wife Mariaan’s birthday party at Olive Rock, Wolseley, on 20 August.

It was a beautiful evening. Good friends, good food, good wine, even good weather. But the single item that set it apart from any similar event I have ever attended, was the music of the
Hungarian Trio. It is also the one item that has generated the most compliments.

Thank you once again. Man, you really make a difference!!!


Dr. Chris and Mariaan Fourie

CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE at Spier 20 October 2011

We had the honour of playing for the  Climate Change Conference at Spier,hosted by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation.This was the precursor to the Durban  Climate Change conference.Representatives of 42 countries attended these Pre-COP Ministerial Consultations.The meeting was chaired by Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane,incoming President of COP 17/CMP7.

In her speech,the Minister shared some of the impressions she had formed after the consultations which had taken place,and some of the expectations and hopes for the upcoming Durban Climate CHange Conference.

With all our hearts,we wish the delegates wisdom and success in finding sustainable climate solutions for all of us.

The Hungarian Trio played all sorts of international tunes for these ministers and delegates from all over the world,interspersed of course with splendid African tunes.Our favourite is Ntyilo,Ntyilo.This means Little Bird-a very beautiful tune.
