Oksana Kolesnikova - A Russian Music Goddess

6. January 2010 by Daniel 0 Comments

In the lounge of the Beverly Hills Hotel in California, a well-known talent plays piano five days a week, moving audiences with heartfelt melodies. The talent is Oksana Kolesnikova, a renowned Russian-born pianist and musical composer.


As a performer, Kolesnikova has entertained U.S. troops as well as U.N. officials. She has recorded seven CDs and collaborated with many international musical artists. Additionally, Kolesnikova is the founder of a music school in Los Angeles, CA, which teaches students of all ages how to play the piano and other instruments.

 

From the heart of Siberia the multitalented musician emerged. In an interview she was asked how she became interested in music. She related a story from her childhood in Khazakhstan, where one day she encountered “a beautiful young woman seated on a bench, hands flitting like birds across black and white piano keys, music pouring seemingly from her fingertips.”

 

Shortly thereafter, she enrolled in music school. When she reached age 15, her parents moved the family to the U.S.


In addition to her accomplished career as a musician, this hot Russian woman has been the subject of rumors of romantic ties to Hollywood star Mel Gibson. Though the rumors appear to be untrue, she has been known to have performed for Gibson in the past.
