A minute with Alice Ayvazian Vocalist


Where do you live and with whom?
I live in Geri, Nicosia with my husband Costa and two children, Christo who is 9 and Sylvana who is a year old.

What did you have for breakfast?
Toast with eggs.

Describe your perfect day
My perfect day would be spent with my family, getting up in the morning and going to the beach. Then coming back for lunch at home and relaxing for the rest of the day, playing games, ordering pizza and enjoying each other’s company.

Best book ever read?
I like Paulo Coehlo’s books so I would say that The Alchemist is definitely one of my favourites.

Best childhood memory?
Going to the Troodos mountains with my family for picnics.

What is always in your fridge?
Cherry juice since it’s my son’s favourite, veggies & various fruit.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Lately I’ve been listening to Stevie Wonder in my car through the Spotify app.

What’s your spirit animal?
Never thought of that, but I would say the horse as an answer, due to its calm nature.

What are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of my children and grateful for having them in my life.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
In the original musical movie of Annie (based from the Broadway production), there’s a scene where she is singing the song Tomorrow hoping for a better future. That scene has always stuck with me.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I’d love to meet the jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald! I’ve always admired her for her vocal flexibility and supreme sense of swing and phrasing.

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
I would have liked to go see where and how my great-grandparents lived at the beginning of the 20th century.

What is your greatest fear?
I’m not fond of insects, especially cockroaches…

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
To strive to be the best that she can possibly be, and the right people will come along who will appreciate that.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would be with my family until the end.

Alice has a series of upcoming events in Nicosia and Limassol
