“There are few places that allow us to freely share ideas and emotions, pass traditions on from generation to generation and foster a sense of belonging with others,” said KWS Music Director Andrei Feher.

“The music in the concert hall powers that, and we will continue to inspire and entertain as we return to the in-person performances.”

KWS says Feher will conduct a variety of series, from exclusive and pop concerts to baroque and family concerts, on his return.
