A classically trained pianist, Rachel received formal piano training at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD) with Alison Bowring. A highly skilled performer, Rachel possesses extraordinary musicianship and piano improvisation skills.  Her love of music spans a range of diverse musical genres including classical, jazz and popular culture. Rachel is a member of the British Paraorchestra, with whom she performed at Glastonbury in 2019 as part of the Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra with conductor Charles Hazlewood. She was born blind and also has Asperger’s.

Speaking about the concert, which celebrates the power of music to connect people everywhere, Rachel said: “It is a great pleasure for me to perform at True Colors festival which will showcase the thrills and pleasures of music with artists who are committed to their passions. Sharing is caring, experiencing is believing.”

Viktoria has established herself as a creative leader, connector and innovator in the post-disability community, bridging pop culture and art with academia, medicine and brands. Her hyper-stylized performances have been seen across the globe, including the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics, the Super Bowl 2022Miami Art Basel and her sold-out residency at the iconic Crazy Horse Paris cabaret. Viktoria’s work has been recognised by Barack Obama, who chose to profile her his guest-edited WIRED magazine issue, due to her relentless campaigning to push art and inclusivity forward in entertainment.

Viktoria said: “I am excited to bring my latest audio, visual performance and a futuristic lens on diversity to the True Colors Festival.” 

“A huge change is underway to make room for acceptance of people like myself. An understanding that human value cannot be limited to the physical body, it is the evolution of ideas with diverse minds that can get us through the next challenges we face. Technology can not only help us break the physical barriers of ability but create an equal playing field not governed by centuries of perspective and attitude.”
