Lakodalom van a mi utcánkban - performances in NJ and CT

The Csűrdöngölő Hungarian Folk Dance Ensemble and the Életfa Hungarian Folk Music Band plan to heat up the Crossroads Theatre in New Brunswick, NJ with passionate music and fierce dance on March 19, 2011 at 3 PM and 7:30 PM. The two groups together will evoke the dance and musical traditions of several regions in Hungary with breathtaking choreography, musical arrangements and an assortment of handmade costumes.

Everyone loves a wedding, and you are invited to one in this quaint Hungarian village. You will be traveling there on the ‘MÁV’, Hungarian State Railway. You will experience how versatile and diverse Hungarian folklore is, and how villages located just miles away from each other can be so unique. Please accept our gracious invitation on board the MÁV as we ‘time-travel’ to forgotten days of the past, when song, music and dance were the focal points of daily village life. Once you arrive at the wedding, you will be welcomed and we are sure you will enjoy the festivities.

March 19th - 3pm and 7:30pm
Crossroads Theater
New Brunswick, NJ 08901
