About the artist

Jennifer Peringer is a pianist and arranger whose musical history has been guided by her love for cultural diversity, community service, and creative collaboration.

She currently performs chamber music from around the world with The Bernal Hill Players, folk and popular music from Latin America with the Chile y Limón duo, and classical piano duets with Lauren Cony and Matylda Rotkiewicz. She also accompanies several community choirs in San Francisco, including Coro Solera, Coro de la Treinta, Coro del Centro Latino, and the CMC Coro de Cámara.

As a performer Jennifer has played with salsa bands in smoky nightclubs, with music hall troupes in riverside pubs, with protest bands in city streets and circus tents, with wild free-improvisation ensembles in artist lofts, with actors in theaters large and small, and with both classical chamber music ensembles and solo in beautiful concert halls and churches. She particularly loves collaborating with composers, and has been involved in several world premiere performances.

Jennifer has taught piano and a variety of other classes, such as Latin jazz groups, chamber music ensembles, children’s music camps, and accordion, at the Community Music Center in San Francisco since 2000. She graduated with a Masters in Piano Performance and a K-12 Music Teaching Credential from San Francisco State University, following an undergraduate music degree from the University of London, where she gave a final piano recital of American Experimental music.
