By Evelyn Bonilla

Pianist Pamela Ross is no stranger to the big stages of New York City, having performed for 52 weeks on 42nd Street’s Theatre Row and stages throughout the U.S. and abroad she is an award-winning pianist, actress and writer. Her solo pieces on the piano and those played with an ensemble and other performers are “unique and special “in the way she delivers them. Ross has two award-winning one woman shows to her credit “Carreno” based on the tempestuous life of the great turn-of-the-century Venezuelan pianist, Teresa Carreno and “Goodbye Harry”-a tribute to her late father, both were written and performed by the talented Ross.
