About Peter Cosbey, cello  and Mariko Kamachi-Cosbey, piano:

Peter Cosbey, cello  – Acclaimed for his versatility in a wide variety of genres, cellist Peter Cosbey enjoys a career as a highly sought-after chamber musician, orchestral musician, composer, and educator. “His virtuosity is apparent with every stroke of his bow” (Echo Germanica). He is a founding member of The Annex Quartet, one of Canada’s most dynamic groups, which has appeared in hundreds of concerts, including at Carnegie Hall, Toronto’s Luminato Festival, and the Stratford Summer Music Festival. The Annex Quartet collaborated with Jane Bunnett to win the 2015 JUNO Award for Jazz Record of the Year. Peter has been a guest cellist with the Afiara Quartet, Hausmann Quartet, the ARC Ensemble, and has been heard on CBC radio. He served as Assistant Principal of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and performs regularly with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, the National Ballet of Canada, and the Esprit Orchestra. Peter is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher and chamber music coach and has taught and performed at many summer music festivals and programs. He is a member of the dynamic Cosbey Family Quintet. A graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Glenn Gould School, he began his cello study in Regina.

Mariko Kamachi-Cosbey, piano – Pianist Mariko Kamachi-Cosbey began her piano studies at the age of five with Mitsuo Yoshimo in her home country of Japan, where she was a laureate of the Piano Teacher’s National Association competition (1990 & 1991). She continued her studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Glenn Gould School under the tutelage of Leslie Kinton. In Canada, she has performed frequently as a recitalist and chamber musician. The 2007 Regina Musical Club Competition winner recital performance with Peter Cosbey (cello) was broadcast on CBC radio. As well she has performed for the Regina Chamber Music Festival and the Alicier Arts series in Toronto.
