Presenters of the concert-conference:
Arielle Omelianenko (17 years old): studies at BICSchool (Brussels International Catholic School), observes and studies music since the age of three, plays on several instruments, has a colour-hearing ear, is passionate about harmonies and musical analytics, writes stores, poetry texts (mostly lyrics for her songs), and greatly enjoys drawing. Since her youngest years, she was singing her own melodies, but was persuaded, back then, that is was something absolutely everybody did for fun, and thus gave it no attention.
At the age of sixteen, Arielle started to feel the need to record her music and bring each one of her pieces to completion. She is interested in all genres and instruments, masters both classical music recording and modern computer music softwares. For each one of her works, inspiration comes to her through her various hobbies: books, movies, travel, nature, sport, and work of many other composers.
Elena Reznikova (pianist, vocalist): teacher at the musical school “The Nutcracker”. The entire pedagogical system of the school is based on the Russian system of music education and focuses on a maximum expansion of the cultural horizons of students and the development of creative thinking.
