Since then they have given many performances both in Hungary and abroad. The Chamber Orchestra consists of 20 professional musicians. Their repertoire covers almost every musical style from the Baroque music to music of the 20th century. Their permanent concert hall is the theater of the Danube Palace, Budapest (Duna Palota; Zrínyi utca 5.) Apart from the concerts they organize both for adults and children, they regularly play at various musical events held in Budapest. They are frequent guests at the Music Academy, at the Vigadó, at the Stephanie Palace and at the Convention Center. They have had international contacts since 1983 and have been invited to play in many foreign countries. They have often accompanied solo artists at music competitions and participated in colorful operettas, ballets and oratorio performances as well. Danube Symphony only do the musicians work together in this orchestra but in several chamber orchestras as well.
