View World Music Days Events for this Artist
A busy 4th grader from Los Angeles, Rio Mangini is a classical pianist, actor and voice over artist. He spends his days at classes, auditions and callbacks, but at night- it’s Beethoven and Bach!
In the past year, Rio has placed in four prestigious international piano competitions and in November made his debut at Carnegie Hall! In April 2012 he was invited back for his second performance at the world’s most prestigious venue!
Other performances include Le Petit Cirque, charity events in Los Angeles and Las Vegas as well as television and web interviews.
In November, superstar Alicia Keys saw a YouTube of Rio and tweeted about “This little prodigy”. He woke that morning to 6,000 hits on his website! A voracious artist Rio draws more than he plays piano. He loves his weekly acting and improv classes, doing voices, Greek Mythology, Jim Henson’s Muppets, and fencing!
