Congratulations to Year 5 VSV student, Amalia, who was recently a finalist in the Elena Obraztsova VIII International Competition of Young Vocalists. She is the first Australian to ever compete in the competition.
Amalia was accompanied on the piano by her brother, Artemii, who is in Year 8 at VSV.
Due to the pandemic, only singers from Russia performed live. Amalia and Artemii, as well as other foreign contestants, provided a video recording of their performance.
“It would have been great to perform live but unfortunately I had to perform through video recordings due to the current situation,” said Amalia.
Amalia was thrilled to be part of the competition and make the final.
“I really wanted to spread my energy, happiness and positivity to as many people as possible; this competition provided me with just the opportunity I needed,” enthused Amalia.
Performing in front of professionals, including a large audience of producers, singers and classical music fans, was also a highlight for Amalia.
The competition was held at the end of August in St Petersburg and attracted around 130 singers from nine different countries. The jury consisted of renowned opera singers, conservatory professors, and artistic directors of music theatres.
