The award, made by Hungarian President Lászl Slyom, was announced by H. E. György Szapáry, Ambassador of the Republic of Hungary to the United States on March 15, Hungary's national holiday.
The richly decorated emblem will be presented to each Takács member at a concert at the Hungarian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
