The ILVES Sisters Story

The ensemble The Ilves Sisters is a group of dazzling, talented and buoyant sisters who began making music together in their childhood. The eldest of the sisters, Liidia (1990) is a pianist, works as a piano teacher and occasionally performs with the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. The cellist of the ensemble and the third youngest of the sisters Silvia (1992) has been a member of the Sandra Nurmsalu band and took part of many music projects. In addition to making music with her sisters, she currently focuses on her soloist career. In 2015 she worked in the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. A much beloved violin teacher Aleksandra (1993) began sharing her knowledge on violin playing at an early age and by now her pupils hold her in high esteem. At the same time she is a violin virtuoso with The Ilves Sisters. The chanticleer of the ensemble Damaris (1994) is enchanted by opera and wishes to tie her life and career with singing. She has always been interested in theatre and music and has found a symbiosis of the two in the world of opera. Gloria (1997), the youngest of the sisters has been playing the violin for more than ten years and contributes to the ensemble her youth and sweetness. Like the other sisters, she has achieved much at international competitions.

All of the sisters have studied at Tallinn Music High School and are all currently furthering their education or have done so at the Estonian Music and Theatre Academy. The sisters are all highly renowned interpreters of classical music. The beginning of 2016 brought something nostalgic and musically refreshing to their repertoire – they finally made their dream of performing the repertoire of the legendary Swedish ensemble ABBA come true. The sisters have chosen their favourite pieces, and now it is possible to hear and see them perform something from the world of pop in addition to their repertoire of bright, powerful and emotional classical music. Actually, both could be described by the same adjectives! ABBA’s music has touched the Ilves girls deeply and the passion that unites the sisters when making music is phenomenal!
