Tuning into the Orchestra

Bina

Bina Peters, viola

Bina grew up in Great Falls and Billings. She began Suzuki violin lessons at age three. Throughout high school she played in the Billings Symphony Orchestra. In 2000 she was selected to play in the National High School Honor Orchestra in Washington DC. She received a BA in music from the University of Puget Sound and was the concert mistress of the symphony orchestra. Bina’s viola playing began primarily in chamber music groups in high school and college. She considers it is a privilege to play viola with the Bozeman Symphony and with the Omni Quartet.

Bina decided not to pursue music as a career. However, she attributes her work ethic, focus, diligence and success in other areas, particularly as a lawyer and in her athletic pursuits, to her years as a Suzuki student. Bina received her JD from the University of Montana and practices law in Bozeman as a Water Master at the Montana Water Court. She also spends time training for ultramarathons and recreating in beautiful Bozeman with her husband and dog.
