The Friends of the Budapest Festival Orchestra commemorated the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution with a “Musicale” at the Hungarian Consulate.

Budapest Festival Orchestra will take the stage at Lincoln Center under the conduction of Maestro Ivan Fisher in early February. But last week, they hosted a special 30-minute performance leading up to the event for guests including Janna Bullock, Sharon Bush, Miller Pierce, Antonia Gomez Gorton and Dale Noelle.

Check out the photos from the wine-soaked evening below.
