She continued her education in Moscow, where she moved in order to finish college. Namtchylak later graduated from Gnesinsky Institute in Moscow, majoring in Vocal.

Dmitriev, director of the Cultural Center Dom, Moscow). After the festival in Muenster Namtchylak repeatedly performed as a member of the Tri O(jointly with S. Letov, A. Kiritschenko, A.
