Laura Magnani
Laura Magnani, Spoleto (Italy) native, holds a double degree in Piano and Voice, earned with honors at the Conservatory of Perugia, a Master's in piano performance at the "Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia" in Rome and a DMA in Piano at the Conservatory of Perugia. She attended multiple Masterclasses along with eminent pianists such as S. Perticaroli, A. Delle Vigne, B. Petrushansky, M. Campanella, D. Pollack and many others. Since age 15 she's been active as a performer, touring Italy, Europe, USA and Canada as a soloist and in various chamber music ensembles, gaining the enthusiasm of her audiences and the critics' acclaim. She has served as the artistic director of the Spoleto Piano Festival for 15 years.
Since moving to California in 2013, Ms. Magnani has been actively concertizing for many Bay Area organizations, including San Francisco’s Museo Italoamericano, Leonardo da Vinci Society, and 405 Shrader; Berkeley’s Town and Gown, and Marin County’s Musica Marin, among others. Always engendering enthusiastic feedback from her audience, Ms. Magnani recently became a performing member of the prestigious Berkeley Piano Club. Sought after as an adjudicator for piano competitions, Ms. Magnani is equally in demand as a piano teacher and a vocal coach. She teaches piano and chamber music at Marin Academy in San Rafael, Marin Community Music School in San Anselmo, as well as maintaining a private studio in Novato.
