Chapel Perilous introduces…

Karolina Csáthy

Born in Budapest, Karolina began playing the violin at the age of five. Since 2022 she has been studying with the revered violin professor from the Royal College of Music, Lutsia Ibragimova. Karolina’s most recent professional engagements include the Andermatt Winter Music Festival with the English Classical Players (Switzerland), recordings of contemporary works, including Maria Antal’s Kron-Alias Violin Concerto (Budapest Music Center), as well as numerous recitals across London and Cambridge. 

Karolina owes her entire choral upbring to her time as a choral scholar with the Choir of Trinity College Cambridge under Stephen Layton. After an additional year with the choir as a lay clerk, she has since sung for many distinguished directors, including Robert Hollingworth and Owain Park. She now directs her own choir, Accordare, recently recording their first album of contemporary choral works by Richard Lambert. 


Violinist and vocalist Karolina Csáthy has been with Chapel Perilous since its creation. Karolina brings so much skill and enthusiasm to her many and varied roles in The Hidden Face and we’re absolutely thrilled to be working with her again.
