I am a Canadian composer and orchestrator born in Yevpatoria, Crimea (USSR).
I started studying piano when I turned five, went to music school and then, from the age of 15, studied music at the Tchaikovsky State Music College in Simferopol (Crimea, USSR). I then studied composition at the Odessa Conservatoire (now called the Odessa National A.V. Nezhdanova Academy of Music) under Prof. O. Krasotov.
A few years later I was invited twice to participate (under Sergey Berinsky) in the prestigious Russian Seminars for Promising Young Composers at the famous Composers’ House in Ivanovo where great Soviet composers such as Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Khachaturian, Myaskovsky, and many others, worked and lived.
My works for orchestra and choir have been commissioned by the Chuvash State Opera and Ballet Theater, the Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, the Chuvash State Symphony Capella and other Russian and Ukrainian ensembles.
After coming to live in Canada near Montreal I studied Orchestration for movies and television, graduating from the Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA) under Ben Newhouse.
Owning my own studio I am equally comfortable composing contemporary orchestral music, choir music or soundtracks using any mix of real and synthetic orchestras.
I am a proud member of the following professional societies:
– Association of Canadian Women Composers (ACWC)
– Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN)
– Canadian New Music Network (CNMN)
– Union of Composers of the Russian Federation (formely called the Union of Soviet Composers)
