“Many years ago as a young student I was fortunate to experience the magic of creating music on stage together with my great mentors Bernard Greenhouse and Boris Pergamenschikow. Besides our regular one on one lessons we actually performed together…The difference between listening to them explaining how to create a phrase and literally making one with them on stage was huge and significant.

Ever Since those magical moments I was fortunate to share with my musical heroes, I always knew that when I will be a teacher the feeling of passing on the tradition will be complete only when I will be able to share music with my own students on stage. This day has arrived when our Cello Gang was created.” – Amit Peled
