Anna Starushkevych was born in Lviv, Ukraine where she started her artistic journey as a pianist and then as a singer. After graduating from the Liudkevych State Music College and the Lysenko National Music Academy in Lviv, she moved to the United Kingdom to continue her studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

Having started her career singing mostly contralto repertoire, Anna later seized the opportunity to deeply explore her voice during the global pandemic and has since moved to a broader spectre of mezzo-soprano operatic roles. Anna has had the good fortune of winning various prizes at a number of competitions, including the International London Handel Competition, where she took the First Prize, the Audience Prize and the York Early Music Prize.
