The Honved Brass Band from Budapest (formed in 1896) is regarded as the most important of the country: It performs at important military events as well as state visits of canonical or worldly dignitaries. During the whole year it fulfils at important social causes at home and abroad its obligation to give concerts. Open-air performances and international tattoo events also belong to the multiple, first-order program.

The current orchestra formation plays a sample of the composition "The beautiful Lake Balaton" of Richard Fricsay (sen)

In a gangway of the barracks one finds  a documentation, like a museum,  about the history of military music since its beginning (Ancient Egypt) up to the Hungarian territorial army of today. Pictures of uniforms and also musical instruments of different time epochs, programmes and record labels are shown as well as old photos of performances of the orchestra and its conductors. Richard Fricsay, to whom the orchestra dedicates a commemorative concert in the hall of the Hungarian national museum every year, is given a place of honour. For the concert in 2006 János Péntek has composed the Fricsay fanfare, dedicated to the organization.
