Henry Peyrebrune joined the bass section of The Cleveland Orchestra in 1997. In 2014, he took on additional duties as a development gift officer in the Orchestra's Philanthropy & Advancement office. Before coming to Cleveland, he served as principal bass with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Canada (1994-97). He has also been principal bass of the Portland Symphony, Pro Arte Chamber, Boston Philharmonic, and Cantata Singers orchestras, and was a member of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and the Albany Symphony Orchestra.
You could say that Michelle married into the Credo family, as she herself is not an instrumentalist, by getting hitched to Credo cello faculty member Steuart Pincombe. Michelle really made a name for herself amongst her Credo colleagues when she spear-headed the organization's successful "Pepsi Refresh" campaign, raising not only significant scholarship funds but supplying the office with about a years worth of soda (which she doesn't drink, by the way). Previous to her current role with Credo, Michelle traveled North America for one year (together with Steuart and their dog) presenting "Music in Familiar Spaces". And before living the gypsy life, she lived in the Netherlands for four years where she worked in one of the world's grandest buildings, The Peace Palace, as the Communications & Membership Manager for the International Council for Commercial Arbitration. Michelle currently lives in a very small home in the woods (some would call it tiny), with Steuart and their Labrador Lucy.
When Rebecca first attended Credo at age 14 she never guessed that in her next decade of life she would be both a four time Credo alumna and part of the Credo team as well. Between that first summer in Oberlin and being appointed Credo’s inaugural Outreach Coordinator/Artist-in-Residence Rebecca earned her Bachelors degree from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California and her Masters degree in Cello Performance and Suzuki Pedagogy from the Cleveland Institute of Music. In between summers at Credo Rebecca attended the Banff Centre, the Aspen Music Festival, and played professionally in the Lancaster Festival Orchestra. She has also been a fellow at the McGill International String Quartet Academy and the Toronto Summer Music Festival, where her collaborators included Martin Beaver, Barry Shiffman, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Jonathan Crow. Rebecca believes that music can make a difference in the world, and to that end she performs for all manner of audiences throughout Northeast Ohio with the Kalos String Quartet and Classical Revolution Cleveland, teaches cello at Thrive Arts Center, and serves as Music Team Leader at her church in addition to her work at Credo.
