Embodying the metaphor for Highest Performance, having performed the Highest Grand Piano Concert in the World at 5000m in Himalayas to raise money for charity, Evelina is one of the most versatile
and creative artists and educators in UK. She didn't stop there, in August 2019 she completed 3 more extreme concerts
in Guatemala - in the forests on top of legendary Lake Atitlan on August 19th, and the first ever grand piano concerts on the active volcano - sunset and sunrise concerts,
August 24th and 25th (Volcano Pacaya).

Having studied classical music to a very high standard in Dnipropetrovsk Music Conservatory (Ukraine) and winning Chopin and contemporary classical music competitions in in her youth, she's also spent many years studying jazz and developing her own writing style resulting in release of her "Soul Journey" album (2015) - which she took with her to the Himalayas to perform alongside a program of Chopin at the "Highest Grand Piano Concert on land" in tribute to her mother who was also her music teacher.
During her record-breaking performance (Highest Classical Concert in the world and the Highest Longest Concert in the world) she also spoke on camera about her experiences.
Being interviewed by the Guinness World Records, Evelina said:
"It was such an honor to be asked to play my music in the clouds, [but] it was one for the
hardest things I have ever done."
Traveling to Guatemala in 2019, Evelina was inspired by the incredible diverse nature and mayan culture and set onto extreme concerts expeditions in Lake Atitlan and Volcano Pacaya that would not only be record-breaking but enlightening and transformational for her and the teams involved. These expeditions forever altered the course of Evelina's life and she's currently completing her
first book "Extreme Music. The road to self-actualization".
Evelina has always been passionate about psychology, self-development and education and has acquired many techniques over the years, allowing her to develop her own "Inside the Music" therapy and experience, as well as her series of seminars titled "Subtle Secrets of Success" and presentations on various subjects - from prestigious achievement to high performance, from the value of music education to
post-traumatic growth. INSPIRE, ASPIRE AND CREATE is her motto.
