Walter Preucil has been a member of the Lyric Opera of Chicago orchestra since 1988. He began his studies in his native Iowa at age 9, and attended the Eastman School of Music and Indiana University, where his teachers included Paul Katz and Janos Starker. The press described Walt's 2002 recital at Carnegie Hall's Weil Recital Hall as "beautifully expressive," and having "color, warmth, and freedom. Walt has twice performed cello concertos with the Peninsula Music Festival orchestra.
As a teacher of the Suzuki talent education method, Walt has taught at several schools, including the Preucil School of Music (Iowa), Lawrence University (Wisconsin) and the Interlochen Arts Camp (Michigan). He has also served as a section coach for the Chicago Youth Symphony, the Music Institute of Chicago Academy, the Schaumburg Youth Orchestra, and High School District 211 (Illinois).
A great fan of chamber music, Walt has treasured the 23 seasons he has performed with Midsummer's Music Festival. Walt has also performed chamber music extensively in Europe and the Middle East. In 1993, Walt performed in the feature concert of the "Remembering Dvorak" festival in Spillville, Iowa, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the composer's visit there, and his writing of several compositions, including the String Quartet Op. 96 "The American."

The changing venues during the concert season, including private homes as well as public places that sometimes serve as improvised concert halls, require the musicians to make adjustments depending upon the space and acoustics - "spontaneous changes in bowings and articulation every night," Walter said. Occasionally he has to make a modification because the close quarters have put an audience member in the pathway of his bow!
