The Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) Foundation is proud to present Virtuoso Violinist Katica Illenyi in concert at the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s Arkell Pavilion. All proceeds benefit Vision 2020, a Decade of Transformation, and the building of the new Hoyt-Hunter Cancer Center at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.
“We are delighted to have an artist of this magnitude perform a benefit concert to support this critical project for our regional community,” said Chair of the SVHC Foundation Bob Van Degna. “This is certain to be a magical evening for an excellent cause.”
Illenyi has played violin since the age of 3. At 14, she was admitted to the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest to the class of “special talents.” In 1991, she obtained her master’s degree in violin from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music.
Through her 20 albums, many of which are gold and platinum, Illenyi has mixed genres, including classical, popular, jazz, and swing. She also plays the Theremin and performs vocal music and dance. She is one of Europe’s most influential musicians, and her YouTube videos have garnered as many as 12 million views. She is among four artists chosen to represent Hungarian culture worldwide. The evening’s program will feature Illenyi’s favorite pieces from her varied repertoire.
