Bradford Kochel has managed the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society Box Office since the 1999-2000 Season. With his wide knowledge of artists, repertoire, and venues, he excels at every aspect of concert management and customer service, from concert recommendations to matching patrons with their ideal seats. Bradford studied piano at the Peabody Conservatory (under Julio Esteban) and later privately with Lillian Freundlich and Yoheved Kaplinsky. He spent the next 20 years working in a variety of non-music-related jobs (including a short period of time in the family business) before joining PCMS. He continues to practice the piano daily while also pursuing several other interests, including philosophy, art, dance, concerts, and all things Ancient Greece.
