Kata Scheuring studied at the literature-French faculty of one of the most prominent secondary grammar schools of Budapest and she was in the last year when she decided to choose music as a career. In 2011 she won the first prize at the Vilmos Bántai Flute competition and this is where Zoltán Gyöngyössy heard her play and commented appreciatively about her and one and a half years later he accepted her to his class at the music academy. During the university years she participated at several national and international competitions with success: she won the 3rd prize at the V. S. Antonov International Flute competition in Kiev in 2013, the 2nd prize and the audience’s prize at the Anton Eberst competition in Serbia, the 2nd prize at the Gheorghe Dima International Flute competition in Romania in 2015, the 4th prize at the International Theobald Böhm competition in Munich in 2016. She puts emphasis on 20th century pieces in her repertoire; she is especially appealed to French music. As a soloist she has participated at international orchestra projects like EUYO pr the tour of the EUphony orchestras and she has had concerts in many European countries. She has played among others in Austria, Italy, France, Poland, Germany and Sweden. She studied at the Sibelius Academy in Finland in the Erasmus programme for half a year in Petri Alanko’s class and had a solo evening in Helsinki. In December 2016 she stepped on the stage of the Music Academy’s Big Hall, conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy, as the soloist of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Music Academy playing Mozart’s Flute Concerto in G major. Whether it is a solo evening or a chamber or orchestra concert, the flutist always actively looks for new challenges.
