Papp László Budapest Sports Arena.

Rhoda Scott is one of the world’s greatest organists. Equally at ease with classical music as with jazz, gospel and blues. Born in New Jersey, USA, the eldest daughter of an itinerant Methodist minister, Rhoda grew up in the atmosphere of the black churches on the East Coast of the United States. While in the environment of many gospel singers, whom she accompanied beginning at the early age of 8, she acquired her incredible instrumental and vocal feeling.

Originally a self-taught musician, at the age of 25 she emerged from the Manhattan School of Music in New York with her Master’s degree in music and honors for the highest scholastic standing in the graduating class.

She made her debut at Count Basie’s Lounge in Harlem where she was “adopted” by all the big names in jazz. She played at the MIDEM in Cannes and her explosive international career took off.

On the bottom line … Rhoda once said, there was a time when she felt coming back to Hungary as to her home.  Most sure that in her last life, she was Hungarian as her hunger began with writing her diploma work on the Kodály method and Bartók’s folk collections.

Not want to mess Rhoda’s concert, mark the date in your calendar. The organizer of the Budapest concert is the Danubius Music Production Office.
