Alisa Borisovsky was born in Jerusalem in 1999 in a family of Russian immigrants. She is now a senior at Lower Merion High school in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Her mother and father are both professional musicians and teachers, so Alisa has a source of inspiration for her music. She started playing at around age 6 and performed in the Golden Key Music Festival in Vienna, Austria, as well as Carnegie hall in New York. She has also joined her parents in duets and 6-hand performances throughout the United States and Europe. Alisa was recently accepted into the University of Pittsburgh and plans on attending this fall to study pre-physical therapy or public health.
