Ms. Lenti completed her undergraduate studies at the Eastman School of Music, studying with David Higgs. She earned her Master of Music degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music as a student of Todd Wilson.

Ms. Lenti is active as a recitalist, having performed on concert series throughout the United States. She has played at regional and national conventions of both the American Guild of Organists and the Association of Anglican Musicians.
