Born in Budapest, Mariann Peller is renowned for creating the hit Hungarian television show “Virtuosos”, the world’s first classical music talent show, as well as founding the Young Virtuosos Foundation, which promotes the study of classical music for young artists. Crystal Ravel will be christened in Budapest on Wednesday, July 11 during a traditional ceremony, which will include the godmother’s blessing from Peller and a performance by the talented Young Virtuosos artists.

The 106-guest ship sails itineraries between Budapest, Basel, Vienna and Nuremburg along the Danube and Rhine rivers, visiting destinations in Hungary, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Slovakia.

Crystal Ravel’s christening ceremony will take place during the ship’s visit to Budapest as part of her July 5 voyage from Vienna, allowing guests to participate in the festivities. Crystal will also broadcast the ceremony via Facebook Live on Crystal Cruises’ Facebook page, so travellers around the world can enjoy the time-honoured tradition and performances by the Young Virtuosos and Tenor Steffan Mullan.

Mariann Peller’s dedication to the study of classical arts extends to the Young Virtuosos Foundation, which, beyond supporting young classical musicians, supports the preservation and education of the region’s musical heritage. Crystal will make a donation to the Young Virtuosos Foundation in support of its ongoing work with young artists.

“We are delighted to welcome Mariann Peller to the Crystal Family, as her passion for the classical arts in her home country and around the world is the perfect complement to the spirit of the Crystal River Experience,” said Crystal president and CEO, Tom Wolber. “It is also a pleasure to welcome the young performers of Virtuosos to the celebration and bring the exceptional talents of the region’s classical musicians to our guests.”
