The La Canada Choral Artists will be performing their first concert of the 2013 performance tour river cruise in Budapest. The concert will take place on Saturday, March 30th at 4 pm at the stunning National Gallery of the Royal Palace.
The Hungarian National Gallery is located inside the Royal Palace complex in Hungary's capital city of Budapest. Located in the Budapest Castle District on the southwestern side of the Danube on the Buda Hills, the Royal Palace was the residence of Hungarian kings. It was built in the 18th century under the reign of Maria Theresa at the sitte of an earlier, Gothic palace. 
The Hungarian National Gallery, or Magyar Nemzeti Galéria in Hungarian, occupies the central wing of the palace and is the national art museum. Below the imposing dome it houses is the largest public collection documenting and presenting the rise and development of the fine arts in Hungary. The permanent collection also represents the past five hundred years of art in Hungary. The National Gallery has operated as an independent institution since 1957 and moved to its present location, the former Royal Palace, in 1975.
