Jari Piper

 

Saturday, June 7th at 7:30pm

Faithful to his classical training, cellist, Jari Piper has eclectic musical taste that has brought him a wide variety of genres and styles. Jari is part of the new wave of young musicians who are showing the world that art music belongs both in and outside the concert hall, performing New Music that will bend your ears in ways that you did not think possible (and you'll like it).

His music takes inspiration from a global range of genres and influences: Classical, Jazz, Minimalism, and folk music from the Balkans and the Americas all feature within his programs. A firm believer in the importance of New Music, Jari has premiered numerous compositions, and strives to make modern music more universally accessible to the public through performance.  His program will consist of 20th and 21st century music, as well as Baroque and Renaissance pieces.

Alaskan-born, and now based in MontrĂ©al, Jari is as comfortable performing in the concert hall as he is in bars, cafes, or the metro. Named   2013 Young Alaskan Artist of the Year , Jari recently completed an exciting tour across America, playing solo works for cello in a wide variety of venues and collaborating with different artists along the way.

Jari has performed across the United States, Alaska, Canada, and Greece.  He made his solo debut in 2011, performing Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 1 with the University of Manitoba Symphony Orchestra. His current professional associations include the ME|2 String Orchestra in Vermont, the McGill Symphony Orchestra, and as a regular performer in Canada and America. He has broadened his education through a number of master classes with noted pedagogues and performers such as Colin Carr, Hans Jensen, Matt Haimovitz, and David Harrington.  He holds a Masters in Music Performance from McGill University and a Bachelors in Music from the University of Manitoba.

Tickets are $15 with a pre-concert dinner available separately for $20. Reservations are required for dinner. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 465-4071 or e-mail us for reservations or more information.
