Ms Antonelli is considered one of the most distinguished and important people in the Harp World, joining a list of few world renowned harpists including former Italian colleagues, Alberto Salvi (1893- 1983) and Clelia Gatti-Aldovani (1901-1989).

Born in Rome, Italy, Ms. Antonelli studied at the famous Academia Santa Cecilia, participating in master classes with world acclaimed harp virtuosos and teachers, Pierre Jamet, Paris, and Susanna Mildonian at the Conservatory of Music in Brussels.

She has performed extensively in the United States, Canada. Europe, South American, Australia, and Asia.

Her solo Italian recitals are often heard at S. Cecilia in Rome, La Scala, Spoleto Festival, Biennale Venezia and Accademia Chigiana.

As a concert soloist with leading symphonies Ms Antonelli has performed with conductors, Igor Markevitch, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Eduardo Mata, Peter Maag and Hans Graf; and with instrumentalist such as Jean-Pierre Rampal, Severino Gazzeloni, Wolfgang Schulz, Andras Adorjan, Dino Asciolla, Garth Knox, Bruno Ciuranna and Vladimir Mendelsohn, to name a few.
