Nina Ferrigno, described by the St. Louis-Dispatch as "a magnificent pianist," has appeared in major concert venues throughout North America. She has performed on stage with the St. Louis Symphony, Boston Symphony, and Boston Pops. Her festival appearances include those at Tanglewood, Banff, and Norfolk, recently performing to critical acclaim at the Skaneateles Festival in New York. Her solo appearance last month under the auspices of the St. Louis Symphony at the Pulitzer Foundation was touted as "the high point" of the evening by the Post-Dispatch. As a member of the Boston-based Calyx Piano Trio, Ms. Ferrigno is committed to bringing classical music to new audiences and works with her colleagues in the trio to commission and perform new works for the genre in a variety of settings. She has worked closely with many of today's leading composers as soloist and ensemble member. She has performed and recorded extensively as a core member of BMOP since its inception. Ms. Ferrigno received degrees with distinction from the New England Conservatory of Music and resides in the St. Louis area with her husband and children.
