The Brussels Jazz Orchestra is going to Hungary in November to perform in two cities. Budapest will host the international premiere of the new project The Sweetheart & The Daredevil , featuring live music combined with silent movies (a collaboration with the Royal Belgian Film Archive). The concert in Pécs, on 20 November, is Graphicology and offers a surprising fusion of graphic novels and jazz.
