Nadia Piave

Chanteuse, producer and raconteuse, Nadia Piave performs repertoire that spans four centuries; from renaissance and baroque madrigals to neapolitan serenades and cafe chansons of the 1940s, from Italian evergreens and folk tunes to tango baladas and Mediterranean world music. Versatile and vibrant Nadia embraces music from Monteverdi to Mambo with all the passion and good taste of her Italian heritage.

Nadia is also a well-known teacher in Sydney, running her own private studio as well as tutoring for both the Sydney Conservatorium Open Academy and the Conservatorium High School. Nadia also runs Fortissimo community choir and Parkinsong, a voice therapy group for people with Parkinsons. Nadia produces several excellent concerts each year, often with many other musicians as well as her own performances.

Nadia has released three CDs: Rose, Caffe d'Amore and her xmas offering O Serafin - she is currently working on a recording of cinema songs from the films of Fellini and Truffaut, again featuring guitarist Gino Pengue, and pianist Mauro Colombis.
