”Those who start life with music find that all their later activities are guilded. They receive a treasure in life that will help them through many troubles. Music is a nourishing and comforting elixir that multiplies the beauty of life and everything of value it contains.” (Zoltán Kodály)
Music has played an important role in my life since childhood. I studied instrumental music, which allowed me to experience the pleasures of making music alone. Nevertheless, I am also grateful to have been able to experience the positive effects of choral singing since the very beginning. Although singing is in and of itself a wonderful thing, when it is shared together, it is for me the most unsurpassable and fantastic feeling there is. I am happy to be able to be a part of all this with wonderful colleagues working under the direction of outstanding conductors.
I can say that I am lucky that my life began with music, and I was able to join a choir as a child and experience how it feels to create something together, to take part in a miracle and become one in music. As a student at the Zoltán Kodály Hungarian Choir School, I had the opportunity to participate in many choral concerts and competitions. From my high school years, I am grateful to Ferenc Sapszon, who taught us that there is no more uplifting feeling than having many, many voices converge and forge themselves into a single great whole.
Perhaps also playing a role in my choice of embarking on a musical career were the example of my parents and the positive experiences I gained in the choral school. I earned my degree in voice and music pedagogy and choral conducting at the Liszt Academy. My outstanding teachers – Miklós Szabó, Judit Hartyányi and István Párkai – greatly contributed to the deepening of my professional consciousness with their professional knowledge and respect for music. I also owe many thanks to the Purcell Choir, led by György Vashegyi, of which I have been a member since my first year at the academy.
