ksenia article 3

Small, yes. (note, I will fix this up eventually so it makes sense.)

No one of twenty participants in the international children’s musical competition “Vitebsk -2005”, which passed within the framework XIV of the international festival of skills “Slav market”, did not can and to assume that in small, slender [Ksyushe] Of [sitnik] of so many energy, and its voice and uncommon manner of performance will not leave indifferent of the members of the judges of this creative contest of young talents. Serious competitor in it they did not see. But when ten-year [mozyryanka] left to the scene during the first competitive day and carried out the igniting song “Of [lyats]i after me”, many downright became agitated

But next day with the composition “accordion” it came out simply lustrously. Judges under the chairmanship of popular Bulgarian singer and producer Nikolai [Binev] were unanimous and returned Boundary- with the Belorussian participant. Yes even the spectators of television channel “harmony”, who voted for the pleased competitor; they also calculated this likable girl of the best.
When passions around The [ksyushinoy] victory a little calmed down themselves, we met it and by its mom of Svetlana [Statsenko], who, by the way, also sings, it took part in the projects “lovage [rosstan]”, “new names”, “song take with itself”, “Heath- moment” and others.
– I have two daughters. By elder, Anastasiys, already seventeen. She has my surname – [Statsenko], while in [Ksyushi] – [papina], says happy mom. – Me it always pleased to be occupied with the children. I have the pedagogical musical formation: I finished Minsk it [peduniversitet]. It always asserted and assert that to learn to sing any child is possible. Only – to each is necessary individual approach. I persistently daily was occupied with my oldest daughter, and as a result experiment ended by the fact that [Nastya] conquered Boundary- with many international competitions. When to the light appeared [Ksyusha], then I immediately understood that it actually has vocal talent.
– Xenia, many children play with the dolls, run on the street, and in you – rehearsals, concerts. You do not feel sorry, that it did study music?
– To me vice versa transported more than all and greatly it pleases to be occupied by music.
– Svetlana, how much To [ksyushe] was the years, when you did begin with it to be occupied?
– The fact is that in Mozir i have a children’s studio “OF [YUMES]” (young masters of stage). There I work with fifteen children. By the way, in Yegor [Volchk], who participated in last “[Evrovidenii]”, I was also instructor. Therefore on [Ksyushu] first “it did not lean”. But when by it were carried out six, we slowly began to be occupied. And it is not quite unproductive: from all competitions, in which it participated, we brought home any rewards. But then I proposed to it to take step higher – international children’s musical competition in Vitebsk, and it agreed.
– [Ksyusha], houses you will frequently eat up?
– Almost always.
– What executors you do please?
– From the Belorussian of Svetlana Statsenko and Peter Elfimov, and from Russia Dima Bilan.
– Besides the music how still you are fascinated?
– I love to dance, to sketch. By dances with me is occupied Alexander Sergeyevich [Zenchenko]’s [khoreograf], who works in the style KhIP -[khop]. This is my cross dad. It always greatly survives for me.
– Occupations by music do not interfere with studies in the school?
– No. I learn in the school of № 13, in September I will go into the fourth class. From the objects me please the music, mathematics, drawing. I have a good teacher, who greatly helps, and if I something do not understand, compulsorily it will explain. Svetlana [Mikhaylovn]’s this [Smychnik].
– [Ksyusha] frequently leaves first to the festivals, then to some concerts, adds mom, therefore for us it is very important that the teacher goes towards. It does not make indulgences, but always where necessarily it will prompt. In Xenia not one eight, only nine and ten.
– A who for the young artiste devises suits?
– This is modeller- designer Valentina [Bulavko]’s merit. It lives even not into Mozir, but in the settlement pine. When I opened my studio, there was large problem with the suits. All modellers, to which it was turned, first of all hurried to specify the sum of fee or they proposed something awkward. But when I was introduced to Valentina, then the first, that she said, after hearing my request: “I should listen to songs”. We as if found each other. In my [studiytsev] now such staggering details, that of them to in time make the personal exhibition of Valentinas. It is very talented.
– With what [aranzhirovshchikami] you do work?
– With many. For example, song “[Lyats]i after me” made Sasha [Bashlakov]. Composition “we together” – Alexander [Efimik], “oh, [vyasna]” – [aranzhirovshchik] from the group “Of [palats]”. I.e., depending on the style of song we draw one or other [aranzhirovshchika] or another.
I will add that the special prize of competition – five thousand dollars – Xenia, as real artiste, decided to spend on new suits and phonograms.

Ksenia Jan 09

23/02 – On January 19th Kseniya Sitnik made an appearance in the final of Eurofest 2009 (the senior Eurovision Belarus nf). She sang a song called ‘Ignite Europe’, which has a much more mature sound than her previous songs. A video of her performance can be seen here:

Andrei Kunets article 1

In the evening on July 11 took place the solemn ceremony of the rewarding of participants in the V international children’s musical competition “Vitebsk -2007”. Boundary- with even 5000 dollars obtained our Andrey [Kunets].

 

Andrey even burst into tears from the agitation and the happiness. For the chairman of judges Anita [Tsoy] it was necessary to calm down conqueror directly on the scene. But after the scene from happiness and experiences for its friend sobbed [Ksyusha] Of [sitnik].

 

After the declaration of results the mom of Andrey took away son into [grimerku] in order to change clothes and to prepare child for the appearance. But at that time journalists surrounded leader Koontz, the mom [Ksyushi] of Svetlana [Statsenko]’s [Sitnik].

Svetlana [Statsenko]– When we were prepared for “Slav market”, I clearly was understood, that Andrey must “[vpetsya]” into these songs. We have theatrical tour in Germany (we they gave more than 10 concerts), then we were invited on Independence Day of Belarus’ into London – there it performed funeral service before the ambassadors, it told Svetlana [Statsenko]. – This allowed it to be sufficient to confident at the competition. Although, I will open the secret, when they declared the output of Andrey to the scene, it was turned to me and he says: “I to drink want!” In me in the hands was the bottle with the water, I give it to it, while in it hands so strongly shook that it could not fall by the neck of bottle to the mouth. You can occur, as child strongly was disturbed! For me it was necessary to hold the bottle of the very so that it could drink. But it was assembled on the scene – in this the professionalism of child consists. I took him as the hand and she said: “You whom fear?! You go to the usual concert. You cannot work badly, be it rural club or concert with the participation of Head of The State. You must equally work well, because before you people!” He said proudly: “Yes!” and it went to the scene!

Today Andrey also was disturbed. We to the end were not assured in these results: is the case, chance. We assumed that something prize must be. And when they declared Boundary- with, Andrey to himself began to cry, [Sitnik] to himself. They are generally very friendly and by mountain they stand for each other. To try itself on “by Slavyansk market” was the desire of Andrey.

I always tell my children: “Material to you is selected class, you are dressed class, arrangement in you class. To you there remained only to leave and to ripen – this is this nonsense!” Andrey, however, as all children, with whom I work, child with the nature. I never this nature break: it does not please it to sing this song – it sing will not be. Child must survive song, it must traverse it. With Andrey it is somewhat easier than with Xenia, because [Ksyusha] daughter and some organizational moments suffer. Andrey is very good, but is [vrednenkiy]!

 

About the future, which waits [Ksyushu] Of [sitnik] and Andrey Koontz, Svetlana [Statsenko] does not want to speak with the confidence: “My oldest daughter earlier very well sang, occupied the first places at the numerous competitions, and then, when time to alien select, she said: “Moms, this all very well, but I want other!” And it entered into the university, now are studied languages and it is very contented. How will be occupied these children in the future, I do not know. But as soon as they will say that this tired to them, they got tired, we will immediately end work. I cannot force them to be occupied by this! [Ksyusha] greatly loves to sketch details – it can, it will become well-known designer, Andrey loves to investigate and to gather technology.

I have other [detki]. Last year was collected them in September… I do not thus far derive them to the large scene: they are necessary the year of [dva]-[poltora] in order to be ready psychologically for this. They should build hauberk around itself, and only then leave to the scene. For this very reason in this year my children will not give claim fors “[Evrovidenie]”. Xenia went there, when I with it [otzanimalas] 4 years, Andrey – after 3 years of occupations. To my new students is necessary as the minimum another year”.

After the declaration of results Andrey [Kunets] was gladdened, first of all, so that now it is possible to eat the chocolate ice cream: the leader Andrey Svetlana [Statsenko] strictly forbids to his pupil him to eat before the competition.

– Andrey, and that you will make the remained summer? – are tried to elicit journalists.

– Give Svetlana [Adamovne] to rest! Say: “Svetlana [Adamovna], you will take a trip somewhere rest!” – laughs [Statsenko].

– Svetlana [Adamovna], you will take a trip somewhere rest! – smiles Andrey.

– You did hear? It let go me! Write down this! – is glad Svetlana [Adamovna].

About that, on that spent prize money, Andrey speaks that not to him to decide. Parents apparently, will study this question.

ksenia article 2

Xenia, we with you!

Today third time “junior” brother of adult competition “Eurovision” – Eurovision Junior – will declare the conqueror of 2005.

In the evening [novekhonkiy] concert complex “[Etias] arena”, that contains eight and one-half thousands of spectators, will light up its “illumination of future”. On one scene alone it is established by 330 “of the lamps of intellectual light”. The director of the joint translation of two Belgian television networks [VRT] and [RTBF] will begin reverse ten-second counting, and the main musical intrigue of the end of 2005 will begin. As the local newsletters write: “By his most august attention song competition will consider itself prince [Belgiyskiy] by Lauren, the second son of king Albert [Vtory]. This there will be the first case of monarchal participation in the measure during entire history “children’s Eurovision”.

But before wishing Xenia [Sitnik], Vasiliy [Rainchik], poly-not [Zhdanovich] and to all to us endurance, simple luck and outstanding mood to the forthcoming evening, I will describe to you small, almost detective history, which is called, to the hors d oeuvre. As earlier they wrote in the films with the subtitles: “Sounds the stressed music”… Xenia will not leave to the scene “Of [etias] of arena” in the suit, which for it specially developed the fashionable designer of clothing Ivan [Ayplatov]!

It is more precise, detail in the style sport -[glamur] it was necessary to quickly alter. The fact is that an embarassment occurred during the costume rehearsal. Black [bryuchki], which on the idea of the author must dress under the magnificent short skirt, completely merged with the black counter of scene. Ivan, of course, this turn of events foresee could not. The director of translation diplomatically advised to finish something in the suit. The good of Svetlana [Statsenko] – mom [Ksyushi] – experienced person in the variety business, it took for any fireman immediately all [dochkiny] concert suits. In the evening entire Belorussian delegation observed in Hall the hotel “Of the [kholidey] of the Inas” “the showing of modes” from Xenia [Sitnik]. [Otsmotrev] the represented details, all unanimously arrived at the opinion that to come out nevertheless stands in the creation Of [ayplatova]. But instead of the black trousers Of [ksyusha] it will put on pink gaiters. Which will appear by the bright luminescent spot against the background of the green light decorations, specially selected to our appearance.

By the way, Belgian director proposed the very successful flow chart of children on the scene. The appearance appears effectively on the monitor. It especially pleases spectators, when [Ksyusha] sings, looking directly into the camera, rising in this case along the stairs. However, I will not reveal all maps, in the evening themselves everything you will see.

Xenia according to mom, agitation does not feel. The spectators “Of [etias] of arena” are located at a great distance from the scene. And [Ksyusha] “does not see, whom it is necessary to fear”. This to us to the hand. On the eve of our young stars visited one of the secondary schools Of [khasselta], where they met with the class, which will ache for Belarus’ in the hall. Belgian contemporaries greeted Xenia with very heat-. This also gave confidences to it. However in order not to distract singer from the thoughts about the main thing, I assigned several questions to its teacher, producer and most important fan – its mom.

– Svetlana, in [Ksyushi] this first foreign journey?

Are not, that you. She already travelled over with us sex- Europe. Xenia “moved”.

– A your oldest daughter, who also does sing, it is not jealous to Xenia?

– She already large and understands, that earlier the parents did not have such possibilities as now. So he speaks about [Ksyushu]: “The main thing – in time to be born”. I, by the way, also give to drink. But Xenia from us is “vocal itself”. I to it and itself a little envy. To come out on this immense scene – enormous honor. I can only ask permission against the background of this scene to photograph. But [Ksyusha] on it feels itself as houses.

– A you lost with Xenia this situation: unexpectedly for all we do occupy last place?

– We are ready for everything. You know, I for the formation teacher. And, I always tell all my children, who are occupied in our studio, that at the competition the main thing – to be pleased to themselves. To know that it worked out to all one hundred. But acknowledgement to no one immediately does not come.

– A how you will study after “children’s Eurovision? You will be prepared for the adult?

– For the beginning let us rest. Preparation was very stressed. Thus far they did not think about the adult. But here children’s competitions in the entire world of thousand. We will storm them. I count, the greater this experience, the independent of occupied place, the nearer we to the professionalism and the success.

– Successes!

Well and we with you today ache for our, we vote for the good.

[SHADRINA] Anna, [Khasselt], Belgium

Pride for Belarus (Kseniya wins)

Our Ksenia entire Europe listens to!

 

That which in no way succeeds in making to the experienced and taking place themselves Belorussian executors, outwardly easily and unconstrainedly made ten-year Xenia [Sitnik] from [Mozyrya]. Young singer subjugated Europe, after gaining victory at the children’s competition of the song “Of [evrovidenie]-2005”, that passed in the evening on November 26 in the Belgian [Khasselte].

Belarus’ third time participated in children’s “[Evrovidenii]”. In 2003 [brestchanka] Olga [Satsyuk] occupied honorable fourth place. The following competition for the Belorussian executor proved to be less successful – European spectator did not hear Yegor [Volchk]’s call to ripen together with it. As sum – only 9 marks and the 14th place among 18 countries.

But the [mozyrskaya] studio “OF [YUME]’C”, pupil of which is Yegor [Volchek], nevertheless proved that it knows how to raise large talents. Xenia [Sitnik] also left the walls of this studio, whom leads its mom of Svetlana [Statsenko].

Children’s “[Evrovidenie]” thus far the yet not so untwisted project as its adult fellow, and the level of competition, of course, at the children’s competition somewhat below. In this year in Belgium of its representatives it advanced only of 16 countries, although it had to be to one more, planned its participation Cyprus unexpectedly was removed from the distance, nevertheless, after preserving for itself the right to conduct national voting.

However, the relative small number of composition of participants not how much diminishes the significance of Belorussian victory. Controlled motion voting in straight ether will not give to [sovrat], that [Ksyusha] with our song “we together!” simply it subjugated European spectator. Young Belorussian gained victory, being expressed by sport language, before the appointed time – for the stage to the finish. Although the detachment from that occupied the second place for Spain comprised only three marks.

By the way, in this year the organizers of competition somewhat modified the system of the calculation of voices. After considering the experience of the past competitions, when it occurred, that the participants did not collect even one mark, which strongly distressed kiddies, it was solved to each young executor even prior to the beginning of proclaiming vote totals, in advance, give on 12 marks. The highest estimation of the competition, in the opinion of organizers, this is the symbolic victory of each of those, who for the first time in the life left to the large European scene.

As a result, Xenia [Sitnik] collected 149 marks. The maximum estimations of Belarus’ placed our neighbors – Russia and Latvia, and also Malta. On 10 balls Xenia obtained from the spectators of Croatia, Rumania, Great Britain, Norway and Spain. 8 marks to us placed Greece and Serbia and Montenegro, 7 marks – Macedonia and Cyprus, 6 marks – Denmark and Sweden, 5 marks – Belgium, 4 marks – Holland.

The second place was engaged young the Spaniard of Antonio Jose – 146 marks, the third – light-haired of raspberries from Norway (123). Further in the order of the occupied places go Denmark (121), Rumania (89), Greece (88), Holland (82), Macedonia (68), Russia (66), Belgium (63), Latvia (50), Croatia (36), Serbia and Montenegro (29), Great Britain (28), Sweden (22), Malta (18).

Not so obviously as on adult “[Evrovidenii]”, but also to voting at the children’s competition was also characteristic the tendency of the support of its geographical neighbors. Shared with high marks Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Belgium and Holland supported each other. The former Yugoslavian republics were also amiable with respect to the representatives of the fraternal countries. Belarus’ and Russia also exchanged 12 points.

In the second place Belorussian spectators placed Spain, to the third – Macedonia. 7 marks Belorussians returned to Norway, 6 marks – Latvia, 5 marks – Holland, 4 marks – Denmark, 3 marks – Rumania, 2 marks – Great Britain even 1 mark – Belgium.

Conquered song “we together!” Xenia wrote itself. Arrangement made singer Sasha [Nemo] and composer Sergey [Zhdanovich]. Suit for Xenia devised well-known Belorussian modeller Ivan [Ayplatov]. But on the scene [Ksyushe] they helped 10-year poly-on [Zhdanovich] 8- summer Vasiliy [Rainchik]- young.

Immediately after her victory Xenia [Sitnik] noted at the impromptu news conference that her triumph – this is the merit of mom. “Mom did everything so that I would conquer”, said young singer. Xenia expressed appreciation to all Belorussians, whom they supported and ached for it.

The success of young Belorussian noted the President Alexander Lukashenko, heat- who congratulated Xenia [Sitnik] immediately after proclaiming of the results of voting.

In 2006 children’s junior eurovision will be held in Rumania.

Interview with Dasha, Alina & Karina (ft. Svetlana)

November 27 2008 – Interview with Dasha, Alina, Karina and Svetlana (Kseniya’s mother/the trio’s vocal coach). Questions submitted by members of the public online.

Who manages the decision-making on jury voting? Whether you know results of voting of jury?

 

Svetlana Statsenko: I know nothing about results of voting. I do not understand what the purpose of the juries is. It seems to me to stop Belarus.

 

Svetlana Adamovna, I heard, that you consider the winner not as a song. And if you were the spectator would vote for it? Will you agree, it was original and was looked very advantageously on a background of all other songs?

 

Svetlana Statsenko: the Georgian children had an original, good number, but I have a question on age. I have worked with children for twenty years and correctly I define children from 5 till 18 years. In my opinion, it was not worthy of a 10 year old. We too have children aged 6-7 who could execute something similar, and they would be applauded. They had an original, interesting musical composition. If I have seen this number at other competition, I would give it high points. But consider, that “Eurovision” is competition of a song which must be sung in a national language, it seems that in Georgia there was a new national language. This song is not suitable for this competition.

 

Svetlana Adamovna how do you think the trio performed? Did our girls deserve 6th place?
