Biography

Kelly Peterson Peral is excited to join the Charlottesville Symphony and UVA’s Music Department. Ms. Peral has made her career as a free-lance oboist in and around New York City, Miami, Philadelphia, Cleveland and most recently Virginia, performing extensively with the Metropolitan Opera, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, NYC Ballet, NYC Opera, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, American Symphony, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, numerous Broadway shows, Palm Beach Opera, Palm Beach Chamber Music Festival, The Florida Orchestra, New World Symphony, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, National Symphony Orchestra, Richmond Symphony, and Roanoke Symphony, among others.

Ms. Peral has served on the faculties of the Cleveland Music School Settlement, Miami’s New World School of the Arts and Florida International University as well as The Juilliard School Pre-College Division. She had the honor of teaching at the 2016 John Mack Oboe Camp in Little Switzerland, NC, a tremendous opportunity to continue sharing John Mack’s legacy.

Having grown up in Central Virginia, Ms. Peral is grateful for her early musical training with Charlottesville’s own Yvaine Duisit (piano) and with David Goza (oboe). Her first orchestral experience was as a member of the Charlottesville Youth Orchestra YOCVA. Ms. Peral finished high school at Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, after which she made her solo debut at the John F. Kennedy Center Concert Hall as a 1987 NFAA Presidential Scholar in the Arts. Ms. Peral holds degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music (BM) and The Juilliard School (MM). Her major teachers include Daniel Stolper, John Mack, and Elaine Douvas.

Since Ms. Peral’s late 2012 move back to her hometown of Orange, VA, she has enjoyed many performing and teaching opportunities throughout the state while also embracing the chance to explore her gardening and local farm/food interests. She has also discovered a love of tap dancing. She is proud to see her parents continuing to perform with the Orange Community Band which they helped bring into existence over 35 years ago and to witness her daughter, Sydney, taking part in many of the wonderful art, dance, and music opportunities available in Central Virginia.
