Our Story

The Paul Peterson Orchestra is made up of some of the nations finest musicians. Individually these musicians have played with everyone from Prince to Aretha Franklin, but for the past 15 years, they have played together as the Paul Peterson Orchestra at galas and various engagements.

Ranging from a trio to a 10 piece band that includes horns, strings and vocalists, they have accompanied everyone from Michael Bolton, John Legend, Kenny Loggins, Donny Osmond, Gladys Knight, and Michael Crawford to name a few. 

Their conductor and founder, Paul Peterson, comes from The Peterson Family, known as the “First Family of Music” in Minnesota.  He and his family were inducted into the Mid America Music Hall of Fame, and they continue to record and tour with people like David Sanborn, The Steve Miller Band and most recently Peter Frampton.. 

Stylistically, this band can handle the toughest classical piece, and turn around and rock the house with a dance set that will keep your party going till the wee hours of the night.
