Israeli-American cellist Amit Peled is acclaimed worldwide as one of the most exciting and virtuosic instrumentalists on the concert stage today. Peled has been named Music Director for CityMusic Cleveland for the 2019-2020 season and is a professor at the Peabody Institute.

Peled lives in Baltimore and performs on the only known copy of the “Servais” Stradivarius by Vuillaume ca. 1865.

During the shutdown, he has shared his knowledge and talents while streaming on Facebook. He recently performed a free show in his driveway that safely brought his neighbors out of their homes and connected them all through the power of music.

Catch Peled's next show on Facebook on Sunday at 2:00pm.
