How did you come to music?

In my case, my love of music started early in childhood. My grandmother sang to me Ukrainian folk songs, and then, we started singing together. As a result, everything we did was accompanied by singing. When I was seven years old, I went to music school, and since then, I haven’t stopped perfecting my singing skills. Now, my voice is an integral part of me, and I don’t know, what else I would want to do with such pleasure and inspiration.

Which famous person would you like to have dinner with?

It’s hard to decide which famous person I would like to have dinner…Probably, with many brilliant singers of all times, such as Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti, Mirella Freni. I think, in order to find the keys to solving creative problems, learning the secrets and footfalls of the profession out of first hand and getting an even greater incentive to personal and creative development would mark some of the reasons why I would love to meet them.

Painful Truth or Comforting Lie?

As a rule, the truth is always better than any lie, if a person’s conscience and dignity are not suppressed, the liar will feel guilty. Lying destroys the soul from the inside.

An exception to the rules can be considered «vital» questions, when lying is the way to salvation.
