Summer 2012

Peter was performing and teaching at the

Interharmony International Music Festival in Arcidosso Italy

July 4-16, 2012

Arcidosso is in Tuscany near Siena and Florence

Along with my other teaching at the festival I will be offering an amateur adult cello workshop along the lines of the cello workshops I have run for almost 20 years in Lubec, Maine. Hundreds of adult amateur cellists have attended and enjoyed these workshops. We have a morning technique class, master classes, private lessons, ample practice time, ensembles with other instruments when possible and appropriate. The festival will also sponser excursions to Florence and Sienna. For this workshop no audition or tape is necessary. All levels are welcome, come as you are. Please contact me if you are interested.

Cellist Peter Lewy has worked on stage and in the recording studio with hundreds of recording artists, from folkies like The Roches, Frank Tedesso and David Massengill all the way to rockers like Nada Surf, Neon Leon and Mark Johnson. He has also collaborated extensively with artists like Jazz legends Jaco Pastorius and Bucky Pizzerelli and Indian sarod virtuoso Vasant Rai. He has performed for thousands from the Clearwater festival to such diverse clubs as The Bottom Line, The Blue Note and CBGB's. Peter's music has been heard on radio stations throughout the world. His classical credits include serving as principal cellist and concerto soloist with several NYC metropolitan orchestras in addition to numerous recital and chamber music appearances including at Lincoln Center. In 2006 his highly personal interpretations of the Bach Suites for Unaccompanied Cello were praised by pianist Maurizio Pollini.
