Jari Piper, currently named Young Alaskan Artist of the Year, is coming to Eagle River, AK as part of his 2014 American Summer Tour.
As a solo cellist, his performances are an intense hour of New Music ranging from the dark and introspective to the raucous and virtuosic.

Classically trained, 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.

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.

Alcohol based inks react differently from paints, giving your art incredibly vivid colors.
In this class, we apply those inks to ceramic tile in a loose and flowing manner to create your choice of beautiful flowers or landscapes.
