It is our favorite time of the year again…National Poetry Month! With our 4th Annual Haiku Challenge under way, we have already received an overwhelming amount of fantastic entries.

Just like last year, we have teamed up with our Hungarian Counterpart, the Aria Hotel Budapest to co-sponsor our 4th Annual Haiku Challenge. Just like the Library Hotel is dedicated to Book Lovers, the Aria Hotel Budapest is dedicated to Music Lovers!

A very special and unique position demands a very special person to fill the role. For guests at the Aria Hotel, our Musical Director, Kornél Magyar, is an ambassador of music and culture, and all things Hungarian. A perfect fit for the position, even Kornél’s last name means “Hungarian.” As a performing artist and music critic from Hungary, Kornél studies mainly traditional and classical music of India and Indonesia. Since 2001, he has been performing and teaching ethnic music genres, but now as Musical Director, he oversees all musical programming and guest experiences at the hotel. He curates the hotel’s music library collection, uses his relationships throughout the city to liaison partnerships with music venues in the neighboring area and coordinates musical experiences for our guests.
