Annalisa Ventola is a Columbus-based composer/performer immersed in classical piano and neo-classical pop art song. From J.S. Bach to John Cage, King Crimson to P.J. Harvey, Annalisa’s repertoire is as varied and complex as her personality. Having studied at the Ohio State University under Dr. Donald Gren (a protégé of Nadia Boulanger) and establishing her own teaching studio at Whitney and Ventola Music Studios, Annalisa enjoys performing everywhere from the concert hall to the neighborhood bar. Her keyboard virtuosity and powerful voice have been known to leave audiences stunned.
Following the success of her performances of the Metamorphosis cycle for solo piano by Philip Glass last Spring, Annalisa is currently working on composing a song cycle and finishing her Zero EP. A powerful, enigmatic and endlessly curious world traveler, Annalisa’s lifelong fascination with comparative religion, metaphysics and parapsychology provide her with a wealth of compositional subject matter.
