About the Artist
Anastassiya Petrova is a jazz pianist and organist based in Boston, but originally from Kazakhstan. She has been a participant in many international and local festivals, and has been fortunate to share the stage with renowned musicians such as Terri Lyne Carrington, Ben Street, Adam Cruz, Patricia Perez, and Marco Pignataro, among others. She has performed at notable international festivals including Eurasia in 2010 (Russia), Umbria Jazz Festival in 2013 (Italy), Wave of Ideas in 2015 (Bulgaria), Panama Percussion Festival (Panama), and the Beantown Jazz Festival (U.S.), among others, and has also appeared on Kazakhstan’s The Voice as well as TEDx. In 2020, her arrangement of "All the Things Evidence Is" received the Student DownBeat Music Award in the category of Outstanding Arrangements for Small Ensembles (graduate section).
After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2019, Petrova was granted a full scholarship to pursue graduate studies at the prestigious Berklee Global Jazz Institute, where she's being mentored by such renowned musicians as John Patitucci, Danilo Pérez, Joe Lovano, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Ben Street, among others. Through and outside the institute, she's currently focused on developing personal projects in a variety of formats, including jazz piano trio, jazz quintet, and organ trio/quartet, which have allowed her to give life to her own compositions, including both jazz and Kazakh folk songs. She is currently working on recording her debut album, Invisible Women, dedicated to female homelessness and featuring organ, piano, and drums as the main instrumentation.
