The Peabody Cello Gang
Amit Peled reflects:
"Many years ago as a young student I was fortunate to experience the magic of creating music on stage together with my great mentors Bernard Greenhouse and Boris Pergamenschikow. Besides our regular one on one lessons we actually performed together...The difference between listening to them explaining how to create a phrase and literally making one with them on stage was huge and significant.
Ever since those magical moments I was fortunate to share with my musical heroes, I always knew that when I will be a teacher the feeling of passing on the tradition will be complete only when I will be able to share music with my own students on stage. This day has arrived when our Cello Gang was created."
The Peabody Peled Cello Gang is composed of students from AmitPeled's studio from the Peabody Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. The students range in school year from undergraduate freshmen to second year master's students. The group comes together to perform works that have been written or arranged for cello ensemble and can also be seen performing concerti with their major professor.
This unique ensemble has performed recently for the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival, The Society of Four Arts in Palm Beach, with the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra, as a resident ensemble in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and all across Maryland, the gang’s home state
