Choir leaders:
Polina Shepherd (Skovoroda) is a highly experienced composer, singer, pianist and international choir and workshop leader. Born in Siberia, she learned music as a child around the family table. Her training at Kazan State Music College and Conservatory gave her an academic perspective. Polina has worked for Glyndebourne Education, the Jewish Music Institute, SOAS Summer Schools and performed all over the world. Her teaching covers many aspects of vocal music from large-scale choral experimentation, improvisation and self-expression to highly arranged choir pieces, to smaller chamber groups and solo. http://www.polinashepherd.co.uk

London-based Bulgarian singer, songwriter and arranger Eugenia Georgieva is best known for her vocal and stylistic versatility with styles spanning from soul and pop to Bulgarian folk. Since 2005 Eugenia has been artistic director of PERUNIKA, a trio performing a cappella, incorporating Bulgarian, Macedonian and Russian traditional songs into a broader Slavic repertoire. Other ensembles include vocal fusion project YANTRA and world music heavyweights Transglobal Underground’s venture UNITE, A Gathering Of Strangers. Eugenia is a member of Natural Voice Practitioners' Network. http://www.myspace.com/eugenieg
