Hungarian Wine And Music

Published: Wednesday, 09/07/2005 12:00 am EDT

Support from the diplomatic community for Ottawa's music scene was emphasized at the annual presentation by Sinfonia Ottawa on Aug. 30. Dénes Tomaj, Ambassador of Hungary to Canada, and his wife Ildikó Tomaj, along with a large embassy contingent, attended the annual "Sinfonia" performance at the Glebe Community Centre, directed by Hungarian-born Janos Czaba, a prominent Ottawa musician and a founding member of the National Arts Centre. Playing music from Italy, Spain, Germany, Finland and Canada, they concluded with a major Divertitimento by Hungary's Leo Weiner. The cello soloist playing Boccherini was young Canadian-Israeli Rachel Aptowitzer. Following the concert, the full-house audience was treated to fine wine, courtesy of the Hungarian Embassy.
