SHORT BIO

 

Artemisz Polonyi is a singer from Hungary, who lives, performs and teaches in New York City since 2012.

Coming from jazz background it`s no wonder that her main approach on music is improvisation. She is a vocalist, who has mastered many different possibilities of using her voice and can often be seen in crossover projects of jazz and early music, in a cappella groups, and providing live music to dance performances.

Currently Artemisz is leading her own jazz trio with their debut album on the way, and is a member of the award-winning jazz a cappella quintet, West Side 5;  the folk a cappella group, Asaran Earth Trio; sings as a section leader at various churches in New York City; and is a member of the choral composer/conductor collective, C4. 


She earned her bachelor's degree in voice performance in the prestigious Royal Conservatorium of The Hague in The Netherlands, then moved to United States with the help of a Fulbright Scholarship and received her masters degree in jazz voice performance from William Paterson University, where she studied with Nan Guptill Crane, Armen Donelian and Pete McGuinness.
