Pittsburgh born pianist and composer Harry Cardillo has been creating and playing beautiful music for over 45 years.

He has shared the stage with such jazz greats as Chuck Mangione, Woody Herman, Billy Eckstein, Houston Person and Sonny Stitt. He has had the honor of performing for dignitaries such as Bill Clinton and the late Senator Edward Kennedy.

Harry's talent was recognized nationally in 2002 when he, along with his father Bobby, were inducted as members of the prestigious Steinway Artists roster.

Besides being a frequent performer at local jazz clubs, Harry was also co-owner of Cardillo's Club Cafe from 1988 to 1992. The popular nightclub featured elegant dining accompanied by local and national jazz artists performing on a stage graced by two Steinway grand pianos.

Harry began studying piano at age seven with his father Bobby, who gained an impeccable reputation as a jazz pianist during the big band era. He continued his education while attending Duquesne University where he studied piano with the late Louis Pollack and composition with William Jenkins.

His education, knowledge and experience have allowed Harry to become a gifted piano teacher instructing students from ages 4 to 84.

Harry has written over 50 compositions, some of which are performed on his recordings.
