This is me in the Photo, Vera
I am a russian opera Singer, living now in Germany. This is in short my nice story that brought me to where I am now in order to prove the seriousness behind my project:
I am from Irkutsk in the middle of Siberia. I grew up in a modest home. Mother was a teacher and Father a logger. I loved Classical Music from my youth and dreamed of becoming an opera singer! The French say, "It is easy to criticize, but art is difficult." I can assure you that opera is difficult, but if you really love it...
When I was 18 I started studying singing at the Music College of Irkutsk. Between 2004 and 2006 working very hard I won my first prize, a Laureate of the Classical Music Festival of Irkutsk, achieving "singer" grade.
Things became serious after that. From 2006 to 2010 I studied Opera Singing at Schnittke Music College in Moscow with Professors Ms A. Litovkina and Ms D. Turova. There I got a diploma in Choirmaster and Opera Singing.
Moreover, it should be noted, that in 2008 I was a Laureate of Classical Music at the Spring Festival in Moscow as well as winning third prize at the N.A. Rimski-Kosakov Anniversary Competition in Moscow in the Choirmaster class.
In 2009 I won second prize at the Balakirev Opera Singing Competition in Moscow as well as winner of the "Miss Romansiada" title at the Russian Romance International Competition in Moscow. Also in 2009 I went to my first master class with Fiorenza Cossotto in Forio, Italy. Next I went to France to study at the Conservatory in Aix-en-Provence.
To improve I studied in Aix-en-Provence for two years between 2011 and 2013 with Maestro Tibere Raffalli and Ms Alexandra Delannoy. Thus I was able to attend numerous concerts and two master classes with Ulrich Schuetz and Daniele Ottovaere.
Since 2013 I have lived in Kassel, Germany, where I was admitted to the Musikacademie. While there I have improved my voice as well as my German language skills, and I have received my Bachelor's Degree in Singing Opera.
And this is the project this campaign is all about:
With all these years of work, the training becomes more and more sharp, but also more and more expansive, and precisely it is where it gets hot. It is to one of the greatest opera monuments I wish to tackle: « THE MAGIC FLUTE » (Mozart). On that point, there is a « Summer School », at the Lyric Opera Studio, in Weimar (Germany), whose registration fee amount to nothing less than €3.850 … By borrowing, left and right, I have one scholarschip,but the problem is the remaining €3.000.
This is a real major step in my training, and now, I really need your support. I want you to know that I am also far from being selfish, and I would be very grateful.
If I have spoken a lot of me thus far, it should be noted, however, that this project is not only a personal project, in addition to my personal development, it is above all a cultural project, and the culture is one of the guiding lights suitable for fighting ignorance. History has shown the ravages committed by (the) ignorance, and it is not necessary to repeat past mistakes.
Moreover, It seems to me that popular education goes by (the) culture. So, if I have to move to come and give concerts, I will remember my kissbankers !
In advance, a big THANKS to my kissbankers !
