Felsöörs, Hungary


Music as a key to success: this is the motto of the non-profit Snétberger musical talent foundation run by Rom guitarist Ferenc Snétberger under the management of Zoltán Mészáros ever since 2011. Each year, the foundation offers a chance to 60 adolescent Roma with difficult social backgrounds to develop their musical talent in the course of a seminar of several weeks that offers expert instruction. The location of this seminar is the Snétberger Music Talent Center in Felsőörs at the northern bank of Lake Balaton. The aim is for as many students as possible to get a chance to finish secondary school or to successfully complete some form of university education. After four successful years, the structures of the educational scheme have been consolidated already, the long-term goal being to maintain them..
