Kyle Victor is a Caribbean-American cellist from Houston, Texas. Kyle graduated from Klein High School where he played in the Chamber Orchestra, which went on to see much success. One of the most notable was winning Grand Champions in the National Orchestra Cup, where he also received best soloist.
Kyle started playing the cello at age 10 as a part of the 5th grade strings program at his local elementary school. He immediately fell in love with the cello and has continued playing ever since, studying throughout his younger years with Jenny Huang. Kyle also studied with Professor Daniel Saenz. Kyle did his bachelors under Amit Peled at the Peabody Conservatory, where he received an Excellence in Music Leadership Full scholarship, and most recently he received the Stephen Kates Memorial Endowed Scholarship in Cello. He is currently attending the Eastman School of Music studying under Professor Doane and Elliott. Kyle was also a member of the Houston Youth Symphony, performing with them as the winner of their concerto competition along with the AFA symphony summer institute. He was also awarded membership in the TMEA All-state Orchestra for two consecutive years.
Kyle has been fortunate to work with some notable musicians like Amit Peled, Alban Gerhardt, Chloe Trevor, Marin Alsop and others. He hopes to one day start a non-profit organization centered around helping low-income areas and providing music programs to children and adults.
