Peter Clark

Pre-Concert Speaker

Violinist Peter Clark first performed in New York’s Carnegie Hall with the Australian Chamber Orchestra at the age of twenty.

As concertmaster, he appears regularly with New Zealand Opera, Victorian Opera, Sydney Chamber Opera, and the Darwin Symphony. He has appeared as principal second with the RTÉ Orchestra (Dublin), and in 2021 became a core member of Omega Ensemble.

His appearance as concertmaster for Semele with New Zealand Opera received warm praise: “Concertmaster Peter Clark led the ensemble with passion and enormous energy, inviting both aching melancholy and playful duetting.” (Clare Martin, Radio 13)

Through his work with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Peter developed a beloved music outreach program at Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital, now in its sixth year.

Peter currently lives in New York City, where his research in music and social cohesion is supported by Judith Neilson AM, and the General Sir John Monash Foundation.
