Cellist Peter Kibbe, son of Los Angeles, was raised in a loving family of classical musicians and composers, has had the pleasure of studying and playing with some of the finest teachers and performers on both coasts of the US, and currently enjoys a career as an orchestral and chamber musician in Baltimore.
Mr. Kibbe has had the privilege of working with many of today's most respected performers and conductors, including Michael Tilson Thomas, Kent Nagano, Grant Gershon, Stevie Wonder and John Legend, to name a few. He has performed orchestrally with numerous orchestras for capacity audiences across the United States and parts of Europe, including acclaimed concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and Carnegie Hall in New York.
