About Nina

Growing up in a multi-faceted musical family left Pittsburgh native Nina Sainato with a divided love for both classical music and rock n’ roll.

Sainato has been performing in the tri-state area since the age of 6.  Soon after beginning classical piano lessons, she found her ability to both perform and compose were at the prodigious level.  Her resume displays a mass of recitals and summits, claiming several state and regional titles of NFMC composition competitions before the age of 10, as well as attending The Governor’s School of Excellence for the Performing Arts at 16.

After spending two years at NYU as a classical piano performance major, she transferred to the Sound Recording program at Duquesne University to pursue her longtime love of rock n’ roll and the recording arts.  During this time, Sainato connected with various Pittsburgh musicians, studios, and producers and welcomed the transition from classical pianist to pop/rock keyboardist, and re-focused her classical composition skills to songwriting.

In recent years, she has made her mark as a versatile and respected vocalist and is also a Certified Master Teacher of Estill Voice Training.   She performs nationally as a solo artist and continues to work as a singer, songwriter, and pianist in the Pittsburgh area.



How long is a show?2019-07-14T14:24:36+00:00

Shows range from 1 hour minimum to 3 hours maximum.  Breaks will be taken at appropriate times based on the schedule of your event.

Is a sound system provided?2019-07-14T14:24:52+00:00

Yes!  A full PA and lighting, if needed, will be provided.

Do you take requests?2019-07-14T14:25:46+00:00

This show is facilitated by backing tracks, so if your request is on the existing song list (see above) I can absolutely honor it!  If you have a special song request for an event that is not on the list, please let me know during the booking process and if I can accommodate it, I certainly will.

Do you play the piano during your shows?2019-07-11T19:46:42+00:00

While I am a trained pianist, this show in particular is designed to be vocals and backing tracks only.  That being said, if you would like me to bring a keyboard and mix in instrumental music, I can do so for an additional cost.

What types of events is this show suited for?2019-07-14T14:29:56+00:00

All types of events, large and small!  I can fit my setup in a small space and perform as background music or as the main feature in a large event center.  Events I have done in the past include weddings (cocktail hour / dinner), corporate events, retirement parties, holiday parties, backyard barbecues, and everything in between.

Publicly, I frequently perform “Sainato Does Sinatra” at various country clubs, Holiday Light Up Nights, as well as in the beautiful Heinz Hall garden courtyard.

Do you do holiday shows?2019-07-11T20:05:17+00:00

Yes, yes, yes!  I have a fully adapted holiday version of “Sainato Does Sinatra” that includes all of the Christmas classics as well as sing alongs if there are children present.

Do you travel?2019-07-13T17:27:29+00:00

Definitely, my schedule is flexible and I love seeing new places.

I walked into the Renaissance after a long day of meetings and was mesmerized by Nina’s voice and presence. I sat down in the lobby and really enjoyed listening to her. She is fantastic and needs a bigger audience to support and enjoy her talents!

Douglas G.

Nina’s professionalism and talent was a super bonus for us to share with our downtown neighbors.  I attend each event and her energy really raised the bar to our other talents strive for.  She makes us look good and we appreciate her work and especially talent.

Martin V. , Heinz Hall

Nina’s level of professionalism is unmatched. We did not have to follow up with her once. She guided us through the process, took care of everything, and ultimately, put on a beautiful performance! Our guests really enjoyed her!

Carli R.

All I can say is “Beautiful Music”!!! Nina made my cocktail hour feel so much more intimate and personal. She made booking so easy and was very quick to respond to all of my questions! I highly recommend her.

Brianna M.

Nina provided dinner music for our daughters wedding this spring and we cannot say enough!  Her song selection set the mood and was a perfect mix of old and new.  She can change her vocal style effortlessly to fit the music.  Also, the sound system she brought was great, some of the guests even thought it was a CD!   Highly recommended.
