THE MUSICAL EVOLUTION OF SONIA KAZAROVA

Portfolio of Work

2019- has been a time of creative expression and expansion.  Beginning with  Miss Kazarova's passion to combine classical and modern art forms.  She created 'AIRCRAFT', a unique expression of passion through opera, orchestra, dancers and acrobats.  AIRCRAFT was designed to showcase how we can 'craft' the air with our voices, bodies and instruments. Sonia performed classical aria with orchestra and pianoforte, together with the use of dancers, live sculpting, aerialists, contortionists, and visual art forms as ancient and diverse as Taiko drumming.  Sonia began in 2018 to showcase classical opera works with these additions in Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Los Angeles, where the show was selected to launch at the unveiling of the 2019 Mercedes McLaren in Beverly Hills!  The success of the show spurred this desire to collaborate and to bring opera to a much wider audience. 

 

  Aircraft inspired further exploration and collaboration. 

In the spring of 2019 Kazarova was invited by producers Malte Hagemeister and Kristian Nord along with legendary conductor Maestro PC, of The String Theory, out of Berlin and Sweden to participate in THE STRING THEORY LA.  Kazarova contributed composition and motifs as well as vocal performance in a week-long musical think tank/performance /live recording experiment of epic proportions.  This collaboration of cross cultural, genre bending and blending, from around the globe was pure joy!  The resultant album 'Sekou Andrews and The String Theory' has resulted in a Grammy Nomination for 2020. 

As a performer and classically trained opera singer these kinds of collaborations are closely aligned with Sonia's true purpose and passion.  The importance of connecting with fellow musicians in a collaborative way allowing for greater expression and understanding of our shared experience.  Throughout this past year Sonia has had contributed to and performed in a unique philanthropic collaboration with' A Call 2Peace Foundation'.  Comprised of celebrated musicians of divergent genres.  The group offers a platform of concerts to support and raise funds for causes including human rights, racial, gender, medical and educational equality, animal rights, sustainability, and climate change awareness and peaceful expression. 2019-2020 Bookings and Concerts
