Peter Kibbe • Violoncello
Baltimore Chamber Orchestra
Mr. Kibbe is a proud member of the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, and performs as a substitute for many orchestras in the greater Chesapeake area.
He is also a member of Pique Collective, a quintet of modern musicians striving to Be More in B'More by bringing together local artists, craft brews, and lively concerts of new and recent works.
In 2016 Peter began working alongside his duo partner Nonoka Mizukami, marimbist, in a project that they have dubbed Cellimba. In addition to performing most of the extant works for Cello and Marimba, Peter and Nonoka use arrangements and interpretations of other works to fill out the repertoire for this uncommon and gorgeous pairing of wooden instruments.
Performing alongside the talented members of NakedEye Ensemble in Lancaster, PA, Mr. Kibbe is honored to be involved with rare commissions and cutting edge premiers throughout the Northeast.
Combining the bellowing of a properly wielded accordion with the sounds of a string trio, Peter is a member of the chamber jazz project dubbed Arco Belo. Together with his compatriots, the ensemble performs original compositions with an air evocative of misty lamplit streets, rich with a warm and sweet string sound.
Mind on Fire
Mind on Fire is a musical arts cooperative, collaboratively presenting contemporary music in Baltimore and beyond. Mind on Fire strives to engage with an inclusive community through concerts, outreach programs, and special events.
Teaching at Woodbridge!
Peter maintains a studio of cello students, and is always proud when they remind him of the value of dilligent work and joyful practice habits. He teaches primarily at the Wood Bridge Music Shop in Ellicott City, MD.
Peter owns and plays a 2004 Cermonese cello by esteemed luthier Roberto Collini, which he purchased at David Michie Violins in Philadelphia, PA.
