Confirmed Venue: Church of St. Anne, Budapest

The St. Bonaventure's College Chamber Choir and Wind Ensemble will be performing in the Church of St. Anne in Budapest on Sunday, April 7th at 4 pm. Located on the Buda side of Hungary's capital city, the Roman catholic church dominates Batthyany Square. Built between 1740 and 1762, the two-towered Church of St. Anne, or Szent Anna templom in Hungarian, is a fine example of Italian Baroque architecture based on the designs of Matthias Nepauer and the Hamon brothers. It is also one of Budapest's most notable baroque buildings. 
On the top of the main gate, there are symbolic figures of faith, hope and love greeting visitors. Above them the coat of arms of Buda is displayed, and in the upper niche statues of St. Anne and Mary guard the entrance. While the frescoes adorning the interior are from the 20th century, the altar and other paintings date back to the 18th century.
