Pianist, keyboardist, composer, and arranger Nicole Pesce entertains audiences with her unique blend of virtuosity, humor, and pizzazz.

By age 10, over 500 songs were memorized and she won First Place in the Discovery National Television Competition. At age 11, Nicole began composing music; by 14, she appeared on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon which aired to over sixty million viewers followed by an extensive US tour. During a year-long residency in Las Vegas, Nicole had the pleasure of performing on stage with Debbie Reynolds at Debbie’s hotel and Casino.
