Version code: #6.1




Linda Kovács graduated as a jazz singer, performing artist and teacher in 2007 at the Jazz Departement of The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest.
Although Linda is committed to jazz, she is also drawn to other experimental genres. In 2006 she attended a musical workshop by Mediawave. Instructors were William Parker, Hamid Drake, Rob Brown as contemporary avantgarde and free jazz artists and Leena Conquest.
Besides singing her attention has been drawn to orchestrating in the last few years. For first practical experiments she has founded a quintet for which she arranges her original compositions for two wind instruments and without drums. An exceptional concert of this formation was performed at the Classical and Jazz series of the Bartók radio station in 2012.
She has had the opportunity to perform with many artists both from older and younger generations. Besides her permanent formations she has guest appearances in many jazz formations. She has performed with both professional big bands in Hungary, the Budapest Jazz Orchestra and the Modern Jazz Orchestra.
Since 2011 she has been teaching jazz singing at the Pikéthy Tibor conservatoire in Vác.
