Russian pianist Lola Astanova has been performing since she was only eight years old.
This Queen of the Keys is also smoking hot.
Her first American break came in 2007, when Lola starred in a $1.6 million Neiman Marcus Classical Superstars Fantasy Concert, which also featured the Kirov Orchestra and was hosted by ABC’s Regis Philbin.
The concert garnered unprecedented attention of the media and became a testament to Lola’s ability to attract a wider and younger audience with classical repertoire.
The connection to Neiman Marcus was logical one for Astanova, who takes a fashion-forward approach to her personal style, and can often be seen gracing the society and fashion pages in exclusive designer creations.
Her 2012 Carnegie Hall debut paid a rich and profound debt to her Romantic roots with a special Tribute to Horowitz concert. The concert, hosted by Dame Julie Andrews, became a historic occasion as Astanova delivered a triumphant performance in front of a sold out crowd.
Since achieving acclaim, Lola has used her talent, time, and influence to support and bring attention to various charitable causes helping to raise funds for cancer research, New York’s 9/11 memorial, and constantly encouraging her fans to support local art and education initiatives.
