Critically acclaimed violinist, recording artist, composer, author, life coach, explorer and environmentalist, Peter Ferreira is described in Comunidades USA Magazine as one of the most celebrated Portuguese-born violinist of the modern era... Since a very young age, Peter spent his formative years training as a classical musician, surrounded by many of the violin masters of the ages... From J.S. Bach to Piazzolla, Peter's astounding energy and infectious passion along with his seasoned golden tone performances have an abundant hot Mediterranean influence, sure to captivate the audience!
Although classically trained, Peter is equally comfortable performing classical music as he is playing rock, jazz, tango, world music or his own Portuguese folk idiom and is a rare musician who defies definition. A kind of universal musician so rarely encountered in our time .
Peter's crossover performances include music from the classical masterpieces to pop, rock, jazz, world music and Latin repertoire to name a few and as opted to "fuse" the new and the old together. He is highly regarded as a virtuoso soloist on a symphonic stage, but equally as comfortable in front of an audience with a rock band behind him.
