Ivelina Ruseva (piano) was born in Ruse, Bulgaria. At the age of seven she began piano lessons and at ten she was accepted in the music school "Veselin Stogianov" - Ruse. During her studies she participated in many concerts and competitions for solo piano. In 1992, she graduated with honors and was accepted at the National Music Academy "Pancho Vladigerov" in Sofia, Bulgaria, from which she graduated with honors again. Since 1999 she has been living in Paphos, where she teaches piano with very good results and also takes part in various cultural events and concerts for solo piano and chamber music. Her experience in piano education spans more than 20 years.
Tina Chester (soprano) studied music in college and took vocal training privately to Diploma level. Although she had sung and performed on stage for much of her life, it was in her mid-30s (when asked by her new singing teacher to imagine performing at La Scala) that Tina's classical voice was discovered. She describes her whole life as being one big mix of music and dance; everything from singing in a pop band, folk music nights, serious mixed choirs, ladies choruses and many solo successes at music festival competitions. She has enjoyed leading roles in Amateur Operatics and Musical Theatre; has performed at weddings, funerals and corporate functions in the UK, solo serious arias with orchestras and small ensembles, annual Gala evenings, Choral works with solos or duets and has studied and taught vocal technique. Tina performed a classical concert with Natalia Lezedova and Doros Zesimos at Technopolis 20 in 2015 and was a soloist in Evagora of Cyprus, a huge production written by Polis Charalambous, at Tala Amphitheatre in 2016.
