    Kucirko, Peter

    Administrator and cellist who was a member of the Concerto Soloists Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia on their 1987 Christmas album, Gloria!  Gloria!.  He was also a member of The Philadelphia Orchestra, executive consultant for the Philly Pops, executive director for the Reading Symphony Orchestra, and general manager for Pennsylvania Pro Musica. 

     

    In 1999, he became executive director of the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra in Lexington, Kentucky, a post he held for eleven years. 

     

    His hobby:  raising horses such as Nonesuch Spirit of Opie, who is housed at Kentucky Horse Park.  In 2000, he and his wife found a way to combine their two loves by creating a multi-media presentation called Horsetails, which was designed to raise money for the LPO’s Partners in Education program, which helps out children in The Bluegrass State. 

     

    He returned to the recording studio at the turn of the millennium, playing cello on the Jubilate Deo Chorale and Orchestra’s 2001 album, Our God Reigns.  Retired from his administrative duties, Peter is still active as a cellist with the Lexington Ballet.
