Monday morning, it's the beginning of the spring and I climb up to the fourth floor at Ayala street, where Svetlana Bendikov lives.
An opera singer and a voice teacher.
When did you first start singing? When did you discover the voice, your voice?
"My mother says," Svetlana excitatly tells me, "that when I was born, I immediately started singing. I sang before I even spoke. In first grade I started learning music at school, music theory, singing and I also played piano. I was lucky to be born to a musical family. My parents made sure that their four daughters will receive music education. Another sister of mine is an opera singer, and the other is an executive director of a cultural college."
