Classically trained, Jari Piper 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.
Jari is touring with a hand-picked program of 20th and 21st Century modern classics. In addition, he is honored to be performing three World Premieres of new works by written especially for him by up-and-coming composers Reiko Yamada, Chris Kinkaid, and Ryan Brouwer.
After the success of his 2013 tour, where he performed in over 20 cities across the country in anywhere from churches to bars, Jari is now touring to promote his new CD release with an all new program of solo works. Jari holds a Master's Degree in Music from McGill University and a B. Mus from University of Manitoba.
