The album "Nero Goes Pops" is high on my top 10 list. I have a vinyl copy and listen to it often. Thank you, and long may you play.

I watched Peter Nero on Ed Sullivan tonight. Wow! I am 60 and don't remember seeing him play before. I must get a DVD.

I watched an early episode of Ed Sullivan tonight on the Comcast Cable channel Decades. When you came on to play piano and lead orchestra of Rhapsody in Blue. What an awesome, enchanting and delightful performance. You are debonair. So, great!!!

Hello Mr. Nero, I am listening to your LP ‘Piano Forte ‘ and was moved to dash off this little note. I want to say how much I have enjoyed your music over the years, and to thank you for the enjoyment. God bless.

I first saw Peter play in person at the Ravinia Festival north of Chicago, IL. He was quite skilled and refined, especially compared to the popular music that was going around. I still like his style a lot.

Mr. Nero: Whatever happened with your album "NOW"? Why is that not out on CD??? Wizardry! Ellington never, and I mean, never sounded better. Can anyone help me understand why this is not available? What a loss! E-mail me at

I was asked by Richard Stein to send you his regards. He is a great guy married to my mom. I could just imagine you guys having laughs together. Best regards, Guillermo

Peter, you never go out of style. Love your arrangements. Do you remember any of these venues from the distant past? The Sabre Room, Illinois State University. Ever think about playing Champaign-Urbana, Illinois?

Question: Have you ever played your "Fantasy and Improvisations" on any concert tours over the years since 1968? This "Jazz Classic Concerto" is up there and beyond equal with Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Concerto in F. Your piece should be recognized more than it has been. It's another "wonder of the music world" in supreme jazz writing and playing. Thank you.

Friday, Sept 14, 2018 I don't see a concert schedule for this current 2018 year and the upcoming year on your website. Was this omitted by error? We need to know where you're playing? You've got endless years ahead to keep us "fans" in our "Nero-fix"! Where ever you are right now keep us posted with your concert tour/schedule. Thank you for everything you've done to make our lives better!

One incredible talent which has brought me many years of entertainment. The Summer of 42 got my attention, but years of enduring music truly captured me as a fan.

I Attended several concerts in my hometown Philadelphia. The last was in front of the Art Museum, probably in 1975 or 1976. It was one of the most amazing nights ever. Wow...just wow!

Watching you right now on a re run of an old Ed Sullivan show. Honestly, had to look up to see if you were still alive. So glad you are by the way. My parents had all your albums back in the 60s. Such good music and memories. Just wanted to say thanks.

Hi Peter; I have been trying to get in touch with you for some years now however your # must have changed. I trust you are well. Thank you for all the nice things you have done especially for my father. It would be nice to talk again. John

I have enjoyed knowing and working with Peter for over 50 years, presenting him at The Saratoga Performing Arts Center and at Wolf Trap. He was part of the Great Pianists PBS show I produced at Wolf Trap. He then became a favorite attraction when I created Producers, Inc. and placed him with orchestras and P.A.C.s on many occasions. A superb artist and a dependable revered gentleman, it has been an honor to have him as a colleague, acquaintance and friend.

I started to collect Mr. Nero's albums in the early 1960s. When he accepted to be the conductor of the Philly's Pops, my mother and I went to the first concert. We then purchased tickets in the Parquet Circle for the entire seasons. He has always been my favorite pianist and last night I saw him on an old Ed Sullivan show where he played Rhapsody in Blue. His performance was breathtaking. I guess he is retired, but I previously would go to hear him playing with his trio. Thank you Mr. Nero.

My dad was hired by the do many of their carpentry jobs,, so I had the opportunity and pleasure to know your parents. Julius and Mary were wonderful people .Great memories. BTW, the HH Scott tube Hi-Fi in their living room motivated me to switch to tubes. To this day, it is tubes and vinyl. Thanks for some great stuff to spin on the Dual 'table.

Heard you at Clarke College in Dubuque IA in 1964 when Mom drove an hour away with my HS Junior friends and me to hear your marvelous performance. Still I listen daily to you on Pandora especially when I’m painting portraits. Would love hearing you in person again. Now I’m 71 and appreciate your playing even more then ever. Stay healthy and happy, Peter. You are Brilliant!!! A long time fan.

Rescued an original Summer of 42 from my old record collection, and even though scratchy, I haven't grown tired of playing and replaying. Thanks for great memories.

While I never got the chance to hear you in concert, I almost wore out my copy of "Summer of '42" while in college and early career. Setting up our stereo equipment in our newly remodeled home in east TX and just finished listening to "Summer of '42". Thanks for the beautiful music! Enjoy your retirement!

December 30, 2017 Dear Mr. Nero: You are one of the most exquisite piano players I have ever known! Your repertoire is gorgeous, and you possess a beautiful touch. I thoroughly enjoy everything you play, especially the romantic songs, such as "Long Ago and Far Away" with Mel Torme. When my parents were alive, we had the privilege of seeing you at The Venetian Room of The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, CA, in the 70's. That was a blessing and a treasure that I will never forget. I wish I could see you in person again. Thank you for all the beauty and joy you brought into our lives. May you have many more years of happiness. Sincerely, Elisse Diane De Sio Menlo Park, CA
