ABOUT THE ARTIST
Soprano Elena Gurevich has enjoyed a multifaceted career in music.
After receiving Masters degree in vocal performance and acting from Moscow Lunacharsky State Institute of Theater Arts (GITIS), she became a soloist of Moscow Children Musical Theater performing principal roles in classic operas such as "Il Campanella di notte" by Donizetti , Tatiana in "Eugene Onegin" by Tchaikovsky, Kupava in "Snow Maiden" by Rimsky-Korsakov, Militrisa in "The Tale of
Tsar Saltan" by Rimsky-Korsakov, and performed her favorite operetta arias in concerts.
In 1997 Elena moved to San Francisco Bay Area and continued a full schedule as a soloist and music educator. She recently performed a role of Musetta in " La Boheme by Puccini with SFCMC, The First Lady in Mozart’s "Magic Flute”, and Woglinde in "Das Rheingold" by Wagner with San Francisco Lyric Opera.
Since 2012 Elena has been performing with Slavyanka Russian Chorus as a chorus member and a soloist; she performed "Stabat Mater" by Pergolesi with Life of Music, directed by Donna Stoering and "Magnificat" by John Rutter with Soli Deo Gloria, directed by Allen H Simon.
Elena continues to collaborate with SF Russian Center as a soloist, as well as Russian Centers of
Walnut Creek and Fremont, JCC of Palo Alto, and JCC of San Francisco.
An Award Winning Classical Vocalist Yulia Ronskaya has gained international acclaim for her beautiful tone and distinct style of performing well know music in uniquely charismatic and personal way.
She began her professional career while still a student at the Moscow State Gnesin Conservatory.
The talented young soprano made her debut with the Moscow State Opera as Tatiana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, and, after the graduation, continued performing with the same company in leading roles of the classical repertoire.
However, Yulia’s all-embracing interests in the most varied branches of great music have always ranged far afield from operatic repertoire, that is why, after moving to the US, she made a decision to become exclusively a concert soloist that allowed her to explore different kinds of music including art song, oratorio, Broadway, and operetta while always keeping operatic arias in her repertoire.
Ms. Ronskaya has performed Recital Series throughout the United States as well as in Europe and Asia. She collaborated with vocal and dance groups, recorded a soundtrack for the motion picture Little Odessa (available on Amazon.com) and traveled to Thailand by personal invitation of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit to perform a Recital Series at the Royal Palace in Bangkok on the occasion of the Queen’s 60th birthday.
Yulia returned to Moscow multiple times to packed concert halls for concerts with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra to perform Soprano Solo in Oratorio, and solo recitals.
In 2009 Ms. Ronskaya relocated from San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles. Following her passion for pushing the envelope and taking her art well outside its conventional scope, in 2013 she recorded a controversial cross-gender operatic album Les Frissons D'Amour for which she received a Hollywood Music in Media Award as Best Female Vocalist and also, among fellow musicians, an unofficial title Antichrist of Opera. She received a silver medal and an Outstanding Achievement Award from Global Music Awards for the same album in December of 2016. Yulia continues to perform solo recitals, coach private voice student, and is working on her Classical Crossover CD to be released in a summer of 2017.
Pianist Ella Belilovskaya is a renowned pianist in the Bay Area with a prominent solo and a concertmaster career. A graduate of Moscow Gnesin Music College with a BA in piano, she has worked as a pianist, accompanist, and piano coach in Russia and the United States.
In recent years Ella also turned to composition, and is now a creator of a very significant body of work for piano and voice for adults and children. I addition to her active solo career, Ella is holding a position of an accompanist with the San Francisco Ballet and performs with San Francisco singers and bands.
Her songs and musicals have been performed by many American and Russian singers and musical theater groups across the Bay Area.
