A note from Amit Peled
“For the past twenty years, I have established myself as a leading soloist, pedagogue, and conductor in all corners of the globe. Sharing the love of music with the community has become one of my signature statements and goals as an artist. In 2018 I established the Mount Vernon Virtuosi Orchestra, hoping to reach even more people in the Maryland area by offering concerts at no charge. For the 2019/20 season we were able to add Children’s Concerts to our mission, which is what I am most proud of as a musician and as a father of three kids. These special events will take place at the Bender JCC in Rockville, MD. The idea is to have the kids and their families join us on stage for a presentation of 45 minute. I envision them sitting all around us, participating in the music making, and we truly hope to ignite in them the same love, joy, and excitement we feel while performing”.
