Ukrainian soprano Khrystyna Markar will perform a special programme of Ukrainian songs at Rhosygilwen on 10 August

She has a master’s degree in voice at the Lviv National Music Academy and completed her studies with Alexander Vostryakov at the Kyiv National Opera and Olga Pasichnyk at the Polish Royal Opera. She then embarked on a career which took her to some of the world’s greatest concert halls in places such as Vienna, Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg, Oslo, Frankfurt, Leipzig, Munich and Geneva. Her concert at Rhosygilwen will be her first full solo performance in Wales. She will be accompanied on the piano by Dorothy Singh.
