At the age of 17, composer/percussionist Ivonne Paredes moved from her native Lima, Peru in search of a better education. Upon relocating to the U.S., she studied with renowned percussionist Mike Davis, and went on to compose under Dr. Daniel Crozier at Rollins College (Winter Park, FL). A recent Brooklyn College graduate student, Ivonne has studied under the instruction of Douglas Cohen and Tania Leon. Her music has been performed in South America, Asia and the United States. Ensembles that have performed her compositions include the Rollins College Orchestra, Rollins Choir, the Brooklyn College Symphony Orchestra, the YMCA Christian College of Hong Kong’s Jazz ensemble, and Arturo O’Farrill’s Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra.
