Skills

Performing, conducting, voice coaching

For the past 16 years, I've refined my technique and musicianship . The result of my labours is a string of successful performances, along with audience and critical acclaim.      

Originally from Ukraine, I now live in Glasgow, Scotland. As well as classical music, I also enjoy singing contemporary music and in this regard I am proud to have worked  with such world renowned composers as Jannot Heinen(Luxemburg) and Artin Poturlyan (Bulgaria).

 I also took part in the contemporary music festival 'Musica Nova' in Sofia, Bulgaria.

I am keen on promoting Eastern European music and at my concerts I always sing something from my Ukrainian, Bulgarian and Russian repertoire.
