Dhilanthi Fernando, a native of Sri Lanka, has lived in Chicago since 1981, except for a 7-year break when she temporarily 'migrated' to New York and Switzerland. She has been a Hyde Parker for much of that time, and is currently on the piano faculty of The Chicago High School for the Arts. She is also the Chicago representative for the Trinity College of Music, London. (www.trinitycollege.com) She is the founder/director of the women’s choir Le Cantanti di Chicago. Dhilanthi holds piano performance diplomas from the Royal Schools of Music and Trinity College of Music, a bachelor’s degree in piano performance from the American Conservatory of Music, and a master’s degree in musicology from the University of Chicago. In a career that spans more than 3 decades, she considers herself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach both piano and theory, accompany and direct choirs (both concert and church) - and perform widely as soloist and accompanist in Sri Lanka, India, Chicago, New York and Switzerland, where she was on the piano faculty of the International School of Geneva. Prior to leaving Chicago in 2003, Ms. Fernando was on the faculty and administrative staff of the Merit School of Music, St. Therese Chinese Catholic School in Chicago, and was the Midwest representative for the Royal Schools of Music. In New York, she was the pianist for the United Nations choir, and briefly had her own music school, the Taprobane Academy of Music in Cliffside Park, New Jersey.

Ms. Fernando accepts students in piano and theory (TCL, ABRSM and AP)
