Sasha Papernik is a Russian-American classical pianist, singer, and composer who draws on her dueling heritage and wide range of talents to present concerts spanning the genre and continental divide.

Lauded for her "lightly transparent performances of Chopin and Scriabin," The Washington Post (July 2013) calls her “uncommonly attractive and entertaining…managing a comfortable balance of the formal and the casual."


Prokofiev, Irving Berlin, Russian folk songs, and original compositions appear in her repertoire. Her 2013 self-released bilingual album, Victory, has been hailed by reviewers as "an eye opener," (Wildy's World) and "unparalleled in its aesthetics and musical elegance," (Indiemunity).

Sasha Papernik is currently a featured artist in this year's Lincoln Center Meet The Artist series and Carnegie Hall's Musical Explorers program. Her bilingual program, “I Speak Music," has toured New York City schools for The Center For Arts Education. Recent engagements include performances at The Smithsonian American Museum of Art in Washington, D.C., The David Rubinstein Atrium in New York City, and The Joint, Las Vegas. Sasha is a Teaching Artist for Lincoln Center Education and The Center For Arts Education and she is on the piano faculty of the Third Street Music School Settlement in New York City. She is a graduate of Wellesley College and the Manhattan School of Music.
