Adelia was born in 1989 in St Petersburg, Russia, soon moving to England with her family, where she attended the Yehudi Menuhin School and Purcell School of Music, studying violin
with Natasha Boyarsky and Felix Andrievsky. She completed her Bachelor of Music at the Royal College of Music, and last year graduated with a Distinction in Masters of Performance from the RCM with Itzhak Rashkovsky (violin) and Adrian Butterfield (baroque
violin). During her studies she received an Orpheus scholarship and was awarded an RCM Marjorie and Dorothy Whyte Memorial Fund upon graduating. She was sponsored throughout her school and college years by the London J & A Beares firm
who lent her very fine violins on which to play; she now plays on an Italian violin by Lorenzo Storioni, kindly lent anonymously through Beare’s International Violin Society.
