Known for her versatility and her non-hierarchical approach to collaboration, pianist Perri Lo has been collaborating with dancers, singers and instrumentalists for almost 15 years.

She has travelled to Lucca, Italy, to work with conductor Timothy Nelson and artistic director Sophie Roland as a répétiteur for the Accademia Europea dell’Opera on their production of Alcina, as well as to Germany for performances and masterclasses under the tutelage of Kyoko Hashimoto and Rafael Rosenfeld. This summer, Perri will work with Graham Johnson at the Vancouver International Song Institute, before beginning her studies as an opera répétiteur at the University of Toronto Opera Program under Sandra Horst in fall, 2016.
Perri is equally passionate and experienced in her work with dancers. She is engaged by the popular “Ballet Divertimento” dance school and the École supérieure de ballet du Québec, and will begin a collaboration with dancers at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens this summer.
Drawing on a broad range of approaches to artistry and music education, Perri was engaged by the Suzuki School of Music in Calgary, AB for 4 years before starting to teach piano through the McGill Conservatory. She draws on her experience in both the Suzuki and Traditional methods in her teaching and music making.
