Bio:

Lon Gibson is from the Toms River and Princeton, New Jersey area but has lived in Philadelphia since graduating college. A Graduate of Philadelphia Academy of Music, he studied Cello under the famous cellist Elsa Hilger who was the first female first-stand cellist and concert artist of the Philadelphia Orchestra for many years. After receiving a BA in Cello Performance, Lon served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Santiago Chile, where he served for 2 years. During the mission he learned to enjoy the personal dynamic in dealing with people. Upon returning he chose to enter into the business world where he continued to enjoy that dynamic. In 1982 he founded Elan Personnel, Inc., a Legal Placement firm which later became Legalpool, Inc. He was one of the first specialists in Legal placement in Philadelphia. As the business grew, he invested in properties in the Philadelphia area. In 2005 Lon founded Proventures, Inc., a Real Estate Investment firm which he runs today. Proventures, Inc. has purchased over 50 investments to date and currently manages about 30 units.

Through these years, Lon has performed both cello and piano, studying jazz piano with the well-known jazz pianist Father John D'Amico. Lon has performed with the jazz quartet Progressive Chamber Ensemble and formed his own group Muzikopia which performed both classical and jazz. Lon has conducted a 180 voice choir and for the last four years has conducted the Messiah for the multi-denominational community Messiah concert in Broomall, Pa. Most recently Lon has created a musical performance consisting of jazz piano, Pop songs, and well known classical piano and cello pieces. At the end of 2008 he closed Legalpool, Inc. and began to focus on music. His new company Ultimate Concerts, Inc is averaging 4 events per month and continuing to grow. He offers a variety of vocal, pianistic and cello virtuosity that makes for an exciting musical experience.

Lon is currently performing in Philadelphia at D'Angelo's Restaurant and Bar every Tuesday evening from 7:30-10:00, playing cello with the Tom Adams Jazz Trio.

Lon gave an excellent solo performance at my wedding and happily worked with my wife and I on our song selection. His cello set a wonderful tone for our ceremony, and it would not have been the same without him there. He cut his arrival a little close (6 minutes before the start of the ceremony), which lead to some unneeded stress on my part. Aside from that, it was wonderful working with Lon.
