#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Elena Vinetskaya, head of the reception for social and labor issues of the repair and installation specialized trust Norilskenergoremont, took part in the competition for the fifth time last year. As she jokes: “Celebrated a small anniversary”.
All those years she presented vocal items. The love of singing was born in school years.
“I try to choose serious compositions in which the soul is revealed. I always pass the song through myself, because going out and singing beautifully is one thing, and singing with my heart is much more important for me”.
Once, at the music school, the head of the Voices ensemble Anastasia Krasnoselskaya heard her performance and invited Elena to the team. There she performed in a duet with Igor Vodopadov, who today conquers the capital under the pseudonym Gabriel.
At that time, Elena was a student at MGUKI, studied mass media management and sociocultural technologies and led a rich life: she managed to study, earn extra money, perform with a vocal group and even get a driving license. And in a couple of years she changed for a St. Petersburg institute of the same orientation. And there she added to her creative portfolio a victory in a regional competition and play on the stage at the university.
“I really liked it! Sometimes the roles were big, sometimes they were tiny, sometimes I just helped behind the stage. It was breathtaking, fun and student-like perky”, Elena smiles. “I am generally a happy person: my profession today ideally coincides with what I love – this is all that concerns creativity. Plus, in Norilsk I continue to do what I love”.
Elena is a regular participant and laureate of the Stars Corporation festival, a finalist of the Nornickel’s Voice, a participant in Instagram contests. She recently became a songwriter as well.
Last year, our heroine won in the Unique emotional palette category in Stars Corporation. She chose photographs that had accumulated over a certain period and made a collage of them to the song Snow by Nikolay Noskov, which she herself performed. She did not expect a victory in the nomination at all, but was delighted.
“I plan to participate in the Stars Corporation again this year. I know that I will worry again before going on stage, but this is normal: it means that you are still alive as an artist”, the woman laughs.
