ABOUT PAOLO SCARDINA
Paolo is renowned for telling stories through the art of music. His live performances are filled with love as he sings, acts, dances, and plays his piano. His performances also feature his own orchestral arrangements packed with the color of the era and tailored to each and every song.
Paolo got his musical start in kindergarten when he was tall enough to reach the keyboard of an old upright player piano in the basement of his house in Ohio. His mom set him up with piano lessons from her sister, an accomplished pianist, so that Paolo could perfect his piano skills and study music composition. He stuck with it all through high school, college, and graduate school.
He took a break from music and moved to San Francisco to seek a ten-year career as a professional dancer/choreographer. Then he moved on to the world of residential design, starting a successful practice in Portland Oregon. While in Portland he finally acquired a piano and picked up where he left off to forge a career in music. He moved to Sedona in 2011 and continues to make music a strong focus in his life.
He has been a regular musician at Sedona venues including Steakhouse 89, Sound Bites Grill, Vino Di Sedona, Mesa Grill, Reds, Hillside Sedona Center, and Ken’s Creekside. He also entertains for private parties, weddings and special events.
Paolo has performed with the San Francisco Opera Chorus and Ballet, San Francisco Men’s Chorus, Portland Opera, Portland Gay Men’s Chorus, Sedona Superstars, The Sedona Performing Arts Alliance, and the Sedona Creative Arts Center.
