Percussionist Lisa Pegher to be represented on roster of Columbia Artists Management, Inc.

Dynamic and graceful solo percussionist Lisa Pegher (, called “the future of percussion” by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has now joined the roster of Columbia Artists Management, Inc. (CAMI) and will be represented by CAMI Vice President Mark S. Maluso. Booking Inquiries can be made by contacting 212.841.9702 or [email protected].

“I’m always looking for new artistic ways to present percussion to a broader audience,” says Lisa Pegher, “and I’m excited to deepen and broaden my reach in performing as a percussion soloist with orchestras nationally and internationally as well as performing my solo multimedia percussion concerts. I am thrilled about my upcoming association with CAMI.”

Lisa Pegher has been described by the Boston Globe as “forcefully balletic” and by critic Marty Lash of the Door County Advocate as “a gifted passionate artist, with a rock-star aura.” She has been featured in Symphony Magazine as one of the top six performers of her generation and continues to carve a new path for percussion as a solo instrument. As a soloist Lisa has performed with orchestras across the globe including the Louisiana Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Asheville Symphony Orchestra, Lansing Orchestra, and Peninsula Festival Orchestra among others. In August 2011 Lisa performed with the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music Orchestra in Santa Cruz, California celebrating Marin Alsop’s twenty year anniversary season. She has also recently performed with the Grand Junction Orchestra in Colorado playing Jennifer Higdon’s Concerto for Percussion and is also performing concerti by Joseph Schwanter, James MacMillan, Kevin Puts and Christopher Rouse. Lisa gave the Wisconsin premiere of Tobias Broström’s Arena Percussion Concerto with the Peninsula Festival Orchestra and recently premiered and recorded Mathew Rosenblum’s Double Concerto for Saxophone and Percussion with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Gil Rose and Kenneth Koon. As an advocate of new music, she also recently premiered a new marimba solo by composer Derek Bermel at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey and is currently commissioning a new work from composer Richard Danielpour.
