Ms. Parrini is a native of Greenville, South Carolina, and studied chamber music under John Ravnan at the Greenville Fine Arts Center; during her time at the FAC, she premiered several chamber works by composer Jon Grier, and founded the Chanté Piano Trio with two other students, which won the grand prize of North Carolina’s inaugural WDAV 89.9 Young Artist Chamber Music Competition, resulting in a radio interview and performance broadcast in January 2015. During her time at CIM, Ms. Parrini has received first prize in the 2016 Darius Milhaud Competition at CIM, respective second and third prizes in the Thousand Islands Intl. Piano Competitions of 2016 and 2015, second prize in the MTNA National Senior Piano Competition, and a discretionary award at the Arthur Fraser International Concerto Competition. She is a frequent recitalist in the SC/NC area; the Asheville-based Pan Harmonia series has featured her several times as a guest artist, and most recently she presented a solo recital for the Music in Landrum concert series in December 2016 and was invited to perform on the 2017 Opening Gala of the Southeastern Piano Festival.
