Classical pianist Kobi Davidson regularly performs around the Philadelphia, South Jersey and Baltimore area as a collaborative, chamber and solo pianist. Recent engagements include performing in the world premier of "Sky Suite" for piccolo and piano by composer Andrew Kosinski. This premier performance also included works for piccolo and piano, by Mike Mower, Barry McKimm, Herman Beeftink, Léo Delibes, a work by H. Leslie Adams for two flutes and piano, and a solo work by Nikolai Medtner. Kobi was also recently featured at the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion in Philadelphia as a performer and lecturer. The program was designed to resemble a European 19th century musical salon, and included collaborative performances with flute and vocals as well as his own research. Kobi also was a featured piano accompanist at the Conservatory of Musical Arts’ Faculty Spotlight Concert, where he accompanied works for trumpet, viola, voice, piccolo and flute. Kobi regularly performs with his fiancé, renowned piccolo player and flutist Tara Rozanski.

Shortly after, he had his first recital, at Bowdoin College, featuring the music of Bach, Mozart and Shostakovich. Kobi won first place at the 2013 Portland Rossini Club Competition in Portland, Maine,
and has placed in other competitions. From 2013 to 2017 he attended the Marjorie Young Bell Conservatory of Music at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada, under scholarship. At Mount Allison University he studied piano with Dr. Stephen Runge, Dr. David Rogosin, and Lynn Johnson, and attended masterclasses with Canadian pianist André Laplante, among others. Kobi has also taken lessons with Susan Starr, a student of Rudolf Serkin and winner of the silver medal at the 1962 Tchaikovsky Competition.
