A little about Ava /
SHORT BIO: On the heels of her last single “Christmas Tonight” being named one of Tiger Beat Magazine’s “Best Holiday Songs of 2019,” 15-year-old singer/songwriter and Broadway alumna Ava Della Pietra is continuing her remarkable rise with the release of “Optimist,” an inspiring new song about keeping a positive mindset which American Songwriter Magazine called “bold,” “refreshing,” and “radio-ready.” One of forty songs that Ava has written, and one of ten already produced, “Optimist” will be featured on Ava’s debut EP, slated for release later this year.
A multi-instrumentalist who plays piano, bass, guitar, violin, and ukulele, Ava began performing at age four and writing songs at age five. She performed on the national tours of Les Misérables and White Christmas before joining the original cast of School of Rock, and has been featured on Good Morning America, Sesame Street, the Tony Awards, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and more. Over the past year, Ava has performed at the Sundance Film Festival, the Great South Bay Music Festival, the New York Tennis Open, and at Madison Square Garden in front of 20,000 Knicks fans. Most recently, in support of her new EP, Ava performed at My Father’s Place in Roslyn, New York, and in front of a sold-out crowd at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall.
