Recent performances of her music include Pixeliance, for flute, harp & marimba, by the Da Capo Chamber Players at Bard College, Sun in Virgo, for clarinet, in Seth Boustead's Relevant Tones livestream broadcast series, Red Sky, for trumpet, at Women Composers Festival of Hartford, Afterwords, for clarinet, cello, and piano by Great Noise Ensemble, Shadow Harlequinade, for contrabass flute and cello, A Little New Year's Flair for piano, and Rhapsodance for clarinet and piano in Bargemusic's Here and Now Labor Day and Winter Festivals.

Her commissioned orchestral work All Along the Heights was recently premiered by the Jackson Heights Orchestra to critical acclaim. A recipient of multiple ASCAP Plus Awards, she is honored to have received a grant from New Music USA for the premiere of her orchestral composition Illuminations of the Night by the New York Repertory Orchestra and Life on Earth for chamber ensemble with Music With a View. The music department of Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts commissioned her to rework her solo trumpet piece Red Sky for symphonic band, which was premiered by the LaGuardia Junior Band, with a second performance by the LaGuardia Symphonic Band. Other recent honors include being selected as a featured composer in the 2017 Composers Now Festival, and having her music chosen for airing in annual new music marathons in Classical Discoveries, an ASCAP Deems Taylor Award winning program broadcast from the studios of radio station WPRB Princeton, NJ. She was recently selected to compose a new work for Collide-O-Scope Music's Persistence Festival, to take place Spring 2021.
Also a professional cellist, Peri freelances with a variety of groups in the NYC area.
