Pianist Peter Klimo studied with Nelita True at the Eastman School of Music in New York and with Peter Frankl at the Yale School of Music in New Haven. He continued his studies with Tamás Ungár at Texas Christian University (TCU). Aside from playing recitals, Peter Klimo enjoys performing as a lied accompanist and with chamber music ensembles. His performance during a masterclass given by Graham Johnson enabled him to take private lessons in lied accompaniment and chamber music with Jean Barr.

He has performed in venues such as the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and at festivals such as the Dakota Sky International Piano Festival.
