The special and limited seat Concert is conducted by Mr. Mohammad Sidiq.
Born in Budapest, Hungary and raised in a musical family, Katica's first teacher was her father Ferenc Illényi (1935-2007), who played in the Hungarian State Opera House. From the very beginning of her career, she played many operetta and musical roles, but always remained faithful to the violin. Besides classical music, she trained herself in various genres like jazz, swing and world music. She discovered the uniqueness of the genres that she did not get to know through classical music. From 1995 to 2001, she played with the Budapest Klezmer Band as a singer and violinist. Katica and her father travelled around Europe and the United States and released five albums together.
In 2015, she received the Artist of Merit of Hungary award from Zoltán Balog, Minister of Human Resources, and Péter Hoppal Secretary of State for Culture.
