Katya Grineva, known for her romantic piano, has played throughout the United States, Guam, Europe, South America, Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Australia, and the Philippines. She is the only female solo pianist to have performed in the distinguished Carnegie Hall Isaac Stern auditorium a record 18 times. A “noted exponent of Romantic repertoire (WNYC Radio),” Katya captures audiences with her breathless, ethereal concerts. Grineva mixes seasonal repertoire such as The Nutcracker Suite with romantic virtuosos by Chopin, Debussy, Gershwin, and more. “The festive sounds of Christmas carols and holiday tunes inspire everyone to get into the holiday spirit,” says Grineva. In keeping with the holiday spirit, she uses her talent to spread joy to children. Once again, the musician is welcoming approximately 500 underprivileged children, some from orphanages, and others from community schools, to attend her Carnegie Hall concert as her guests. Grineva can also be found bringing the healing power of music to children in hospitals and schools in the tristate area throughout the year.
