This class is new for UMC 2020 and will be held annually in memory of Reera Esmaeilion. The scholarship is dedicated to Reera and her mother Parisa Eghbalian memory. Studying at Suono Music Studio, nine-year-old, Reera showed promise as a pianist when she and her mother’s lives were tragically taken when their plane was shot down on January 8, 2020.

She successfully participated at UMC competition in December 2019 and performed two-level 3 Royal Conservatory of Music pieces.
