Alumni Stories: Peter Cho '91

That's Music to My Ears

Although an Asian Studies major concentrating in China while at Dartmouth, Peter Cho '91 also had an interest in music. Currently a manager for the last two and one-half years in the Artists and Repertoire Department at Sony Music, Peter's interest in music was sparked by a seminar given by former College Professor Bill Coles on the music of John Coltrane. While in Hanover, Peter was a member of Zeta Psi, played ultimate frisbee and enjoyed going to concerts.

During his off terms, Peter interned at a booking agency for jazz musicians and worked at a pottery shop in New York City, a job that he returned to in the year following his graduation.

He then took an audio engineering course and interned without pay at a recording studio for three months. His interest in the music industry continued with his next internship at Chesky Records, an independent recording studio. Peter spent three years here working on, as he says, "great recording projects," and earning promotions to assistant engineer and eventually studio manager. Through contacts made from his work at Chesky, Peter interviewed and was offered a job as a coordinator in the Sony Classical A&R Department. His job entails coordinating recording sessions, working with artists and their managers, producers, engineers, and studios, and the various stages of post-production.
