Boston, MA, October 26, 2015 --( Flutist Peter H.

Mr. Bloom will also appear as special guest with famed saxophonist Charles Neville in a benefit concert for Nepal earthquake relief. Peter H. Bloom has been praised by Jazz Improv for “exquisite melody… the improvisations growing organically out of the theme” while ArtsFuse wrote, “His solos on flute and amplified flute are always highlights of a performance.” Bloom has performed with the internationally acclaimed Aardvark Jazz Orchestra for almost 40 years. Peter H. Bloom is managed by Americas Musicworks.
