Former tour keyboardist with Foreigner, Boz Scaggs and Gary Wright, Pete Reilich grew up near Hollywood alongside schoolmates from Toto. In high school Pete fronted a Tower of Power Funk Tribute band, honing his horn arranging skills after achieving full scholarship to Interlochen Arts Academy, Michigan. Pete received two standing ovations with that school's Jazz ensemble at Cobo Hall in Detroit (1973) for performing his arrangement of a Quincy Jones big band score. Those skills proved helpful when at age 19 Reilich was music director for the Keane Bros (CBS, 20th Century Fox Records) and performed his arrangement of a David Foster song with the Doc Severinsen Orchestra on NBC's Tonight Show.
Son of estranged classical piano genius, William Reilich and nephew of violist Joseph Reilich (New York Philharmonic), young Peter was surrounded by classical musicians mostly of eastern European lineage. He became a recognized piano talent at Studio City during childhood and performed many recitals, as his aunt Lee Reilich was a popular piano teacher in the area. At age 13, Pete was appointed Principal Timpanist for Mehli Mehta's American Youth Symphony (UCLA) and studied composition with Paul Glass. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Glass
