Ali Parra

Graduate SAC Chair in Music


My name is Ali Parra and I am pursuing a Doctoral of Musical Arts in Flute Performance at the U. I play with the University of Utah Wind Ensemble and the Utah Philharmonia. I also teach music at local elementary schools and freelance in the Salt Lake City area. Prior to moving to Utah, I obtained my Masters's in flute performance at DePaul University in Chicago and my Bachelor's at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.  

I am excited to join the SAC and work with my colleagues to promote student involvement and create a cohesive and dynamic learning environment.  Please contact me at
