Pete’s concerts include world class artistry accompanied by morsels of entertainingly informative stories about the songs, composers, etc. A variety of musical styles can be incorporated into any given show in order to best suit a particular audience. This is usually determined by the desired atmosphere of the venue/ event or the general age of the audience.
In 2009, Pete assembled and performed a concert program dedicated to the songs of George Gershwin. He performed the show with his trio at Moravian College (Bethlehem, PA). Video samples from this performance are available on YouTube. The audience response to Pete’s presentation of this program was extremely positive, prompting him to develop a series of informative concert shows (indicated below). Each show is approximately 75 minutes in length. Contact Pete to discuss a booking.
