Anita D. Perry

Anita (A.D.) Perry has always been fascinated by sounds. Her introduction to formal musical training was through ballet lessons and this movement-oriented approach has continued to influence her composing and performing. At the University of British Columbia, Perry studied piano with Lee Kum Sing and composition with Cortland Hultberg. Perry has written over one hundred solo and various sized ensemble works which explore a diverse musical style ranging from simple Renaissance tonality to complex harmonies and aleatoric elements. As a result, some of her works are composed in a traditional mode, while others show an impressionist influence and a fondness for whole tone modalities. A composer, piano instructor and theory teacher for over 30 years, Perry is an active member of the British Columbia Registered Music Teachers’ Association and acts as secretary for the South Okanagan Branch and the Provincial Executive. Perry currently teaches and composes in Summerland, British Columbia with her husband.
