Hailed as an “irrepressibly tuneful composer” by New York Music Daily/Lucid Culture (October 2014), Peri Mauer is delighted to recently have had several world premieres of her music. Topping the  list is THOUGHT’S TORSION for flute, viola, cello by Eight Strings & a Whistle at Tenri Cultural Institute, RED SKY for concert band, commissioned by Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts and performed by the LaGuardia Junior Band in the school’s 2014 Spring Musicale, A LITTLE NEW YEAR’S FLAIR for piano, by Blair McMillen in Bargemusic’s Here and Now Winter Festival 2014, ILLUMINATIONS OF THE NIGHT for orchestra, commissioned and performed by the New York Repertory Orchestra at St. Mary’s Church, AT HOME WITH ALLEN GINSBERG: Five Songs for Baritone & Piano, by Daniel Neer and Christopher Berg in last winter’s NYCC concert at St. Peter’s Church, and LIFE ON EARTH for chamber ensemble in Music With a View at the Flea Theater, for which she also served as conductor. A recent recipient of an ASCAP Plus Award, she has been awarded grants for her music by New Music USA, Meet the Composer, National Federation of Music Clubs, and Composers Guild of Utah. Also a professional cellist, Ms. Mauer has performed with such groups as American Symphony Orchestra, Radio City Music Hall Orchestra, Encompass New Opera Theatre, Orchestra of St. Peter by the Sea, The Chelsea Symphony, American Chamber Opera, among many others, and can be seen playing her cello in the critically acclaimed new Amazon TV series Mozart in the Jungle.
