In April 2018, Dmitrii’s solo debut took place in one of the largest halls in the world – the Vienna Musikverein.

Izabella Andriasian; the Russian diva whose musical flair is that of a soft psalm on a Sunday morning is also a graduate of the N.A. Rimsky-Korsakov Saint Petersburg Music College. Some of her musical achievements include Grand Prix, Regional competition of performing arts soloists and vocalists of children’s musical schools and art schools of Krasnodarkrai, Winner of the Award of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation for the support of talented youth, Award winner of III degree, 1st Open Regional Varlamov Vocal Competition and Winner of the First Prize, XI Zara Dolukhanova International Vocal Competition ‘Amber Nightingale’ in 2018.
