About the Performer

Péter Lóránt Tóth

Péter Lóránt Tóth

A trained health education teacher, Mr. Tóth has found a new calling through his love of literature and the desire to share it. This wandering minstrel concentrates lately on spreading the spoken word of Hungarian poetry. In his opinion, reciting a poem could very well be an exercise in self-discovery, which better enables us to connect the missing dots in our relationship to our world and to ourselves. On one occasion it has been remarked that
when he is reciting a poem, a heightened sense of harmony permeates the surrounding air, and we rush to reconnect with our unadulterated, innocent inner self. He is on a mission, and all Hungarians owe him a token of gratitude. I, for one, am in his debt.” (Ákos Hajvert, president of the Association of Recitalists of Voivodina, present-day Serbia)

In 2016, Péter Lóránt Tóth was distinguished for his work with the László Káplár Good Man Award

Péter Lóránt Tóth is already known by some of the Hungarian Canadian communities thanks to his previous tour in Canada, at which time he was reciting poetry written by Attila József. With his recital Railway Station (Vasútállomás) he dazzled the Ottawan audience as well at the OHCC on February 11th this year.
