An accomplished concert and oratorio artist, Peder has recently been seen throughout the country performing with such companies as The Fort Wayne Symphony, Chautauqua Symphony, Opera Illinois, and the Music Institute of Chicago.   Recent performances include the Elgin Symphony production of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, “Carmina Burana” with the Grant Park Chorus, Park Ridge Civic Orchestra, and North Shore Choral Society, and Beethoven’s “Mass in C” with the Chicago Master Singers.


On the opera front, Peder has been seen performing throughout the country with companies such as Chamber Opera Chicago, Opera Illinois, L’Opera Piccola, Opera for the Young, the Chautauqua Opera Company, and the Seagle Music Colony.  Favorite roles include Nemorino in The Elixer of Love, Ferrando in Cosí fan tutte, and Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus.
