Part III of our virtual Trianon series will be on Saturday, November 14, at 2:00 p.m. via Zoom.
We will have four presenters in this virtual program:
Erzsében Fanni Toth, Ph.D., Renáta Laczi, Ph.D , Ágota Dorottya Demeter and Andrea Bocskor, Ph.D
This presentation will feature personal narratives of four young adults who live in minority status in four countries in the detached regions surrounding Hungary. They will describe in very personal ways how they experienced the aftermath of the Treaty of Trianon. They will describe the critical milestones and key features of their environment that enabled them to retain their Hungarian identities. Our previous lectures have contextualized the historical issues and challenges presented by the Treaty of Trianon, this panel presentation examines how the current generation of young people, whose families have lived in minority status for three generations, perceive the Treaty that has had such an impact on their lives.
February 2021: “Celebrating Franz Lehár”, Presented by Mrs. Andrea Lázár, hostess of WCPN Kapossy Hungarian Radio Hour
Franz Lehár is widely considered the leading operetta composer of the 20th century. His operettas included lush melodies, drama, light-hearted comedy, dance and lavish staging, and with their increasingly high musical caliber, his final works were closer to opera than to operetta. His mega-hit, The Merry Widow (1905), enjoyed such unprecedented success that by 1910 it had been performed over 18,000 times in ten languages, and over a century later, it remains one of the classic operettas still performed all over the world. Lehár also composed operas, sonatas and other musical pieces. Andrea Lazar has a vast knowledge of Hungarian music and composers thus making her the ideal person to share with our audience the life and music of this iconic composer as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth.
