- A few more lines about you :
I was born into a music lovers’ family, so my parents were pleasantly surprised when one day they received a call from the local music school asking if they could come sign the documents for my admission, because my audition went very well. I had done it in secret! I wanted to play piano, but because of my father’s and grandfather’s heritage, we had an accordion at home, so I spent 7 years torturing this instrument, along with solfeggio, music theory and… singing in the choir! I enjoyed it a lot, had a super great conductor/coach, and was very upset when my specialty teacher withdrew me from the choir so that I could play in the orchestra.But my passion for choral music never died.Later, after I graduated from university, I joined an amazing youth choir of local talents, a choir we built together from a random short term project into a well known name in Lithuania. I was heartbroken again when I had to leave it.
And finally, after many years in Middle East, here I am in QCC family!
