Since April 1998 Steinway and Sons has awarded Katya the honorable title of Steinway Artist. Her other awards include: a special award from the New York State Shields in 2003 and, most recently, an award for special achievements from the government of Guam.
Katya is often invited as a guest performer on the exclusive "Silver Sea" and Radisson Seven Seas cruise lines on which she travels through Europe and South America and the South Pacific. Future plans for 2006 include a tour of major concert venues in Japan, India, the South Pacific and South America.
Despite her demanding concert schedule, Ms. Grineva plays at private gatherings, often for the not-for-profit community, to raise awareness and funding for specific causes. Katya performed in New York with the Guayaquil Symphony Orchestra on November 16, 2005 at Avery Fisher Hall, and in November of 2006 Phillipino President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo presented Katya Grineva with the Gusi Peace Prize. photo
