About

Washington Performing Arts presents:
Drew Petersen, piano, in Recital


Drew Petersen is what you might call an overachiever: Carnegie Hall debut at age five; graduation from Harvard at age 19; and an American Pianist Award-winner and Avery Fisher Career Grantee in his early twenties. The wellspring of all these achievements—as you will experience firsthand this October—is a crispness, ebullience, and depth of emotion rare at any age. In the words of composer/pianist Lukas Foss, “What is so astonishing about Drew [is] that he feels the music, he can make it come alive again, make you touched by it.”

"Fearless playing, with recordings to match; this pianist is destined for great things.” (MusicWeb International)
