CLASSICAL MUSIC FOR THE NEXT GENERATION

Rudolf Budginas (pronounced “bud-guinness”), piano virtuoso, along with his band, present a rhythm-pulsating, crossover show of classical hits such as “Moonlight Sonata”, “Beethoven’s 5th” and “Hungarian Rhapsody”. These rock, pop and jazz-inspired arrangements will take classical music in surprising and unexpected directions. His audiences have been wildly appreciative of Rudolf’s impeccable artistry, high energy and dazzling wit. Rudolf delivers an entertaining performance that delights all ages.

Hailed as “A young hip Victor Borge-like entertainer,” the Lithuanian-born pianist recently finished an 82-city, 32-state tour to conquer the hearts, minds, ears and funny bones of American music lovers.

Rudolf studied at the Moscow Conservatory and earned a doctorate from University of Southern California (USC). Rudolf’s passion is to expand the accessibility of classical music to wider audiences.
