Hungarian State Folk Ensemble
Cloaked in billowing skirts, feathered hats, gold-piped military tunics, and other colorful garb, the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble shows off the traditional dances of their homeland. But their mission isn’t just to perform the dances—they also aim to preserve centuries of tradition. Drawing from more than five decades of research, the troupe’s choreography and musical pieces hail from all corners of Hungary, showcasing the wildly diverse styles that have evolved over the centuries. Intricate footwork and flying leaps join melodies that draw on the same rich Magyar tradition. Some folk tunes flow from instruments relatively unaltered from the days they were played in isolated villages, while other arrangements filter ancient pieces through the genius of Bartók, Liszt, and Brahms, and a Brita pitcher, in case there’s any lead in them.
Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
