In a radical departure of past dramatic efforts like Phantom of the Opera, Annie and The End of the World (With Prom to Follow),

She performed her first Gloucester Music Club recital when she was five and would go on to win multiple national and international awards as well as four gold medals from the Royal Conservatory of Music. In 2009, she finish first and second in piano and strings, respectively, in the 10-year-old age group at the Canadian Music Competition.

Home schooled for most of her formative years, Pari studied under Cuban-American pianist Santiago Rodriguez at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami from 2012 to 2016.

In 2016, Pari enrolled in the music program at Carleton University where she is currently in her thrid year studying piano and composition. All the while she has performed recitals and concerts in North America, Europe and Asia. Last year, she performed her original piano composition "Urban Movement" in Beijing, China.

Pari began writing her sonata for cello and piano in 2016. It would take two years before she was satisfied enough with the composition to contemplate performing it in public. Entitled "Escape", it is made up of four movements -- Lento, rubato; Lento; Moderato Pesante; and Allegro, Adagio.

Pari chose the Steinway Piano Gallery on Innes Road as the venue for her recital. For the sonata, she was accompanied on piano by Nicole Presentey.

The performance, itself, was flawless. The sonata can best be described as dramatic, with more hills than valleys. To say it was impressive would be an understatement. At 21, Pari is a seasoned veteran who plays with the confidence of someone twice her age.

After the sonata, Pari further wooed her audience with a pair of her piano compositions -- Directions and the aforementioned Urban Movement.

After she graduates, Pari plans to pursue a career as a composer while playing the odd recital and concent. If the February 13 recital is any indication, her compositions will soon be on the playlists of orchestras throughout North America and the world.
