MOSES LAKE — Renowned Ukrainian sand artist Kseniya Simonova is coming to Central Washington this fall to perform with the Moses Lake High School Wind Ensemble.

Simonova, who first made a name for herself making sand illustrations on Ukraine’s Got Talent, will be in Moses Lake on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, as part of a world tour, according to a news release from Dan Beich, the MLHS Director of Bands.

“In 2019 she was invited on ‘NBC’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions,’” the news release said. “Her performance earned a standing ovation and she received a ‘Golden Buzzer’ from judge Terry Crews, which automatically sent her to the championship round,” where she eventually placed third.

Simonova has used her sand art to illustrate and tell stories to accompany a number of musical works, including Israel’s Eurovision song entry and Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet.

“An internet sensation, Simonova is the most viewed sand artist on the internet,” the news release said. “From 2009 to 2016 she created over 300 sand creations, more than 200 of which can be found on YouTube.”
