Salon Series offers intimate concerts with a new generation of classical musicians— this time with pianist Drew Petersen. Prodigious pianist Drew Petersen is the winner of the 2017 American Pianists Awards and the Christel DeHaan Fellowship of the American Pianists Association, and has been named Artist-in-Residence for two years by the University of Indianapolis, commencing in the fall of 2017.

This is the latest accolade in a decorated young career that includes being prizewinner in the Leeds International Piano Competition, the Hilton Head International Piano Competition, Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Competition and the New York Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition.

Petersen’s career had an auspicious and early beginning—he was presented at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall at age five and by age 10 performed a solo recital at Steinway Hall in Manhattan for the company’s 150th Anniversary. His unique gifts have been profiled in The New York Times, New York Magazine, in the documentary Just Normal and in Andrew Solomon’s book, Far From the Tree.
