About Us

Andrea MarsavonianAndrea Marsavonian, as a child prodigy, began her musical career when only two and a half years old. She astonished her parents and guests by climbing up to the piano and playing a familiar melody in its entirety with both hands. At age four and a half, Andrea began her formal musical studies and her perfect pitch was discovered. A winner of the Bland Memorial Scholarship, The Hermitage Foundation Scholarship, and the Paderewski Gold Medal awarded by the National Guild of Piano Teachers, Andrea studied with Marion White, Mary Goode Brooke, Bristow Hardin, Clifford Herzer, Armand Basile of the Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester, and Irwin Freundlich of the Julliard School. She made her New York debut at the Carnegie Recital Hall.

Though all of her studies were in preparation for the performance of classical music, Andrea from her earliest years, has been composing and improvising. At the age of eight, she submitted the winning entry in a composition competition sponsored by the Norfolk Symphony, now the Virginia Symphony.

Through her discovery of and experimentation with jazz, Andrea brings to her performance all the disciplines of classical music that now permit the execution of her own, never ending ideas, which flow throughout her own compositions as well as her own arrangements of the music of George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Errol Garner, George Shearing, Dave Brubeck, Cole Porter, Glenn Miller, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein, Lerner and Lowe, Leonard Bernstein, Michel Legrand and Sammy Kahn, as well as music associated with Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Tony Bennett, Arthur Prysock, Lou Rawls, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand and MORE!
