Linda Gentille will bring her new “American Piano Show” to the Canyon Lake Lodge on November 14, at 7 p.m., featuring music from famous American composers like Berlin, Foster, Gershwin, Joplin, Miller, Sousa and more. Gentille received high accolades at her Canyon Lake show two years ago.
She recently completed her 10th concert tour of China where the Ministry of Culture credits her with performing more concerts in China than any other artist.
Growing up in Pacific Palisades, California, Linda began her musical studies taking classes at Roger Williams’ studio in Los Angeles. She then studied under Julliard-trained Richard Kohfeld of Santa Monica and won numerous piano awards and accolades as a young pianist.
Still a teenager, she auditioned for the Liberace show in Las Vegas and was immediately selected to tour with him in 1986. According to lindagentille.com, “Mr. Showmanship was so taken with Linda’s natural talent and incredible entertaining capability, he subsequently invited her to perform at his last record-breaking Radio City Music Hall engagement in New York City. This event marked Linda’s ‘coming out’ as a truly phenomenal entertainer and pianist.”
The Fine Arts Guild is bringing Linda Gentille to Canyon Lake and says tickets are now available for $22 per person at the POA Office and brownpapertickets.com.
