Nikolai Rybin


Nikolai Rybin was born in Moscow. Music surrounded him right from the early childhood. His granny sang him Mozart’s lullabies and put on classics on the CD’s. Nikolai started to sing even before he said his first word. He’s singing literally everywhere.
At the age of 5 Nikolai moved to London and entered UK school. In the beginning of his education he was introduced to classic pieces, because he started to take violin lessons. And after that, his musical world only grew bigger. 
When Nikolai turned 8 years old, he became interested in the work of Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and watched the concerts recordings of the great tenors on youtube. Nikolai learnt pieces from their repertoire by heart and began to take professional classes in singing. His vocal teacher is Alexia Mankovskaya. At 9 years old he won his first singing contest in the UK with the song “The walking in the air”.

Lora Grigorieva


Lora Grigorieva was born on 12 November 2002 in a large family, where music is an integral part of life.

Her musical career began when she was three years old and at the age of five, the young singer was cast for the theater studio "Neposedy", where she spent the next 10 years in a friendly and extremely hardworking team. This career start was very powerful for her and in 2013 Lora took part in the national Junior Eurovision Song selection contest, where she made it to the finals.

An important event in Lora´s life was the participation in the singing project "Golos. Dety" (translated: Voice.Children). She participated twice in "Blind Auditions". In 2016, after Loras performance of the song "Prayer", all three mentors of the show project turned to her. This was a special moment for Lora - especially because she dedicated this song to her older brother, who suffers from autism.
Lora tries to show herself in pop music, jazz and academic singing in various musical genres, and is currently working on a complex and multi-faceted program.

About me

Irina Gulyaeva was born in Moscow and studied singing with distinction at the Gnesin State University and the Conservatory in Vienna. She won prizes at international vocal competitions and had performances all over the world.

In 2001, Irina founded her artist agency in Vienna, which mainly represents Russian singers and conductors in the field of classical music. In Russia, Irina organized tours with orchestra for such renowned artists as Montserrat Caballé, as well as opera gala concerts, for example, the concert of Hibla Gerzmava on 30.04.2015 in the Golden Hall of Wiener Musikverein.

Irina Gulyaeva has worked with leading Russian orchestras under the direction of Yuri Bashmet, Mikhail Pletnev and Vladimir Fedoseev, as well as with leading international opera houses, including the Bolshoi Theater, Mariinsky Theater, La Scala, Covent Garden, Vienna State Opera, Berlin State Opera, etc.

Since 2010, Irina also devoted herself to work with pop artists. In the Wiener Stadthalle concert hall, Irina organized a crossover duet of Anna Netrebko and Philip Kirkorov. In 2011, it was followed by a classical concert of pop singer Nikolay Baskov with the Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra. The great success was continued with a short tour in the Moscow Kremlin.

In 2014, Irina began teaching a pop vocal class at the Prayner Conservatory in Vienna. She formed the wo / Men band of very talented young singers who reached the Top 16 in the preliminary round for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

In 2014, Irina was an artistic consultant in the children's opera “The Snow Queen” (premiere - June 12, 2015), which is under the patronage of Anna Netrebko.

Speaking on behalf of the only Russian art agency in Austria, Irina Gulyaeva represents the interests of a bright palette of international artists, and also promotes Russian culture with the goal of contributing to cultural exchange between countries.

The main projects in Irina's life today are: Vienna Children's Ball, the annual charity concert "All for Autism" and a series of concerts "From Mozart to Gershwin", as well as work with young talents.

Like “All for Autism”, the Vienna Children's Ball is a charity event to help children with a diagnosis of autism. Due to the uniqueness of the event with the charm of Viennese balls and the magical atmosphere of a fabulous celebration, the Children’s Ball is especially loved by the Viennese audience and will be held for the sixth time in the Palais Niederösterreich on 11/17/2019.

In 2020, the All for Autism project also celebrates its sixth birthday and holds a large charity concert with a symphony orchestra in support of people diagnosed with autism on the stage of one of the most famous and beautiful concert halls in the world - the Great Hall of Konzerthause Wien (Vienna, Austria). The tradition of a series of charity concerts “All for Autism” was started by the famous violinist and talented musician Yuri Revich, who organized the first concert with first-class musical support in favor of the Austrian organization for helping people diagnosed with autism in 2015. Together with Yuri Revich, the Austrian Autism Aid Organization and the agency Irina Gulyaeva continued this concert series, organizing three concerts in the Golden Hall of Musikverein.

The project “All for Autism” found support of such great stars of the world music scene as Anna Netrebko, Yusif Eyvazov, Yuri Revich, Dima Bilan, Ani Lorak, Sergey Lazarev, Yolka, Lydia Baich, Bel Suono, Jan Josef Lifers, Mikhail Petrenko, Ramon Vargas, Adi Hirschal, Peter Bence, Sasha, Sergey Nakaryakov, Tbilisi Kids Capella, Carrington-Brown, children's choirs and other performers.

“From Mozart to Gershwin” is a regular series of concerts organized by the Art Agency of Irina Gulyaeva and creating a creative platform for new musical talents. The repertoire - as the name implies - ranges from classical works and opera arias by popular composers such as Verdi, Mozart, Rossini or Tchaikovsky, to popular hits by Gershwin, Bernshtein and other works that have been loved by people of different generations. All concerts are accompanied by piano in the form of evening chamber concerts. Our listeners discovered such new names as: Maria Sofronova (soprano), Lora Grigorieva (soprano), Marcos Valenzuela (tenor), Vladimir Merkulov (baritone), Pavel Kachnov (piano), Nikolai Permyakov (piano), Jennifer Georgita (violin) and others. As part of the concerts, young performers got a chance to show themselves and reveal their talent in the multifaceted performance of unfading classics.
