Larissa has an exceptional soprano voice, combined with the gentle sounds of the traditional Ukrainian national instrument the bandura (similar to a lute). Larissa has thrilled audiences as geographically distant as her native Ukraine, Western Europe and around Australia. Through song & music, Larissa will bring the spirit of a nation to the people of Deniliquin through the traditional folk music of Ukraine.
Larissa comes to us from the Riverina Conservatorium of Music in Wagga Wagga where she is a vocal teacher & choir director. Larissa is a qualified concert performer, soloist soprano, music lecturer and choir conductor.

Larissa studied voice at the Kiev Conservatorium where her teacher was renowned professor Serhiy Bashtan. In 1993 Larissa was awarded “national laureate in performing arts” of Ukraine and soon became one of the nation’s leading performers with international concert performances in France, Germany, Latvia and Estonia.
