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.

This is the latest accolade in a decorated young career that includes being the 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.

Born in New Jersey in 1993, Drew Petersen’s career had an auspicious and early beginning—he was presented at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall at age 5 and by age 9 performed a solo recital at Steinway Hall in Manhattan for the company’s 150th Anniversary. His prodigious intellect and insatiable curiosity led him to win a Davidson Fellow Award for the profoundly gifted at age 12 and graduating cum laude from Harvard at 19 with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Social Sciences. He completed both his undergraduate and graduate music studies at The Juilliard School, where he was recently accepted into the prestigious Artist Diploma program.

Drew’s unique gifts have been profiled in The New York Times, New York Magazine, the documentary “just normal” by award-winning Director Kim A. Snyder, and Andrew Solomon’s book, “Far From the Tree.”

In its ninth season, the prizewinning Houston-based wind quintet builds highly thematic programs that feature landmark quintets, new works by American composers, and premiere arrangements of standard repertoire with the goal of increasing accessibility and cultural significance of wind chamber music. WindSync is recognized for dramatic, fully memorized concert presentations that often feature collaborators from the worlds of music, dance, and multimedia.

WindSync tours nationally and internationally, appearing at venues including the Schubert Club (MN), Met Museum, Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall. In 2015, WindSync was invited by the Library of Congress to perform the world premiere of Paul Lansky’s “The Long and the Short of it”, commissioned by the Carolyn Royall Just Fund and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. WindSync’s most recent large-scale project is “The Cosmos,” a concerto for wind quintet and orchestra by Michael Gilbertson that received two performances in 2016. Other premieres include works by Paul English, Garrett Schumann, and Mark Buller.

WindSync takes a special interest in reaching children, families, and underserved audiences. Part of the burgeoning creative placemaking movement, the ensemble has recently focused on activating public spaces via music in Houston and in Opelousas, LA. They have been featured in educational concerts presented by the Seattle Symphony, Midland Symphony, and Orli Shaham’s “Baby Got Bach”, and their concerts for young people reach over 5,000 students per year.

Advocates of 21st century musicianship models and community-oriented programming, the members of WindSync have led master classes at New World Symphony, Texas Music Festival, and the University of Maryland Renegade Series, among others. WindSync has also served as ensemble-in-residence for the Chamber Music Festival of Lexington (KY), Grand Teton Music Festival, and the Da Camera of Houston Young Artists Program.

WindSync is represented by Park Avenue Artists
