The basis of our corporate social responsibility is to make culture, especially classical music available to a wider audience. The company’s own chorus, founded in 2007 is often hosting classical music concerts. The concerts held at the company site were first available only for the employees of IBIDEN Hungary Kft., but later they became free to visit for close partners with an invitation, and then for the local community, too.
On the charity concert held in MÜPA in 2011, aside from the well-known choruses of Hungary, IBIDEN Hungary Kft.’s own chorus, the Noise Filters has also performed. The entire money collected at the monumental concert has been offered to the project called ”90 decibel”. This project supports deaf people and those who are having hardships with hearing properly to enjoy theatrical artworks with the help of sign language interpreters.
At the regularly organized in-house concerts, acknowledged Japanese artists perform besides the chorus of the company.
