He has been a teacher and choirmaster in the Schola Cantorum Budapestiensis. As a teacher, he has taught at the Hungarian Dance Academy, the Baltazar Theater. He is a member of the music staff at the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the Hungarian National Theatre and the Central European Dance Theatre; a singer for the Amadinda Percussion Group, the UMZE Chamber Ensemble, the Hungarian Radio Choir, the Purcell Choir and the ARTUS Performing Company. As conductor and director, he considers it his mission to stage opera performances that bring the genre closer to children as well as adults, even among the difficulties that afflict the Hungarian cultural scene. In this aim, he is helped by his chamber choir Á la cARTe, which is a complex musical society, also functioning as a vocal ensemble and theater company. Philipp's opera productions are played in many schools in the country. At the moment he works at the National Philharmonic on their youth program series.

Madrigali Rappresentativi
Péter MÉSZÁROS (HU)György Philipp (HU)

The participants will become familiar with the musical and theatrical world of madrigal comedies through a special presentation, in which we are trying to answer questions related to the role of madrigalism in the work of contemporary musicians. We will also try to seek the best ways to approach such works and to perform them on stage. The second half of the presentation will be an open discussion, reflecting on the topic together with the lecturers.
