New York, NY (Top40 Charts) She's performed for seven presidents, the Pope and Queen Elizabeth, but never a full-scale concert in Los Angeles. A year after making her Carnegie Hall debut, award-winning classical pianist Victoria Fatu will make her West Coast premiere on May 22 when she plays Boston Court Pasadena at an invitation-only VIP showcase and she will do so with a personal agenda. After being told by a host of classical music powerbrokers - including top agencies and promoters - that her career was finished when she took a hiatus to have children, the Russian-trained artist of Armenian descent returns to centerstage determined to pick up where she left off ten years ago in defiance of out-of-date industry practices.

With support from Steinway & Sons Pasadena, Fatu has crafted a solo piano repertoire for the evening with the theme of reflection. The captivating redhead has a personal connection to each composition that she will perform, the stories of which will be shared during the recital as part of her "different approach to the classical music ethos." Charismatic and gregarious by nature, Fatu loves to talk, which is seldom done on classical music stages. She thrives on interacting with audiences and improvises her between song monologues injected with humor. A passionate and physical performer, her goal is for audiences to leave her concerts inspired.

"One of the pieces that I'll be performing represents that it is never too late to begin something great later in life. This program was carefully curated to represent my life's journey - my joys, struggles and the pain I've faced and overcome. The music stirs reflection, what I represent and my life experiences. I am determined to break the standards and challenge my mind and body to its limits. My motto and the sentence I use to describe myself is 'Limitless in the world of limitations,'" said Fatu, who moved to Los Angeles last year after her then five-year-old daughter, Sophie Fatu, stole the show when singing jazz standards on "America's Got Talent," "Ellen," and "Little Big Shots."

Fatu earned her bachelor's and master's degrees at the Moscow State Conservatory. She has won a slate of international competitions and received multiple grants from major music foundations in the US, Russia, Ukraine and Armenia, and was added to the "Golden Book of Russian Federation" by the President. Fatu would like classical music to be a timeless artform without all the conservative restrictions like having to dress a certain way or play a certain way. Her Instagram (@victoriafatu) page is filled with bright photos of the magnetic beauty, both alluring and maternal, which are a far cry from the image typically associated with her genre.
"I want to be the first female classical pianist who is uncompromising when it comes to career and family. I can fully share what I have to give to the world creatively while loving and raising my children."

For more information about Fatu, please visit The May 22 performance begins promptly at 7:30pm after a VIP reception that starts at 6:30pm. Boston Court Pasadena is located at 70 N. Mentor Avenue in Pasadena, California.
