Born in Oradell, New Jersey in 1993, Drew Petersen began his career as a pianist at an early age. He was presented at Carnegie Hall at age 5, and at 10 he performed a solo recital for Steinway’s 150th Anniversary.

Petersen graduated cum laude from Harvard at 19 with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Social Science and completed both his undergraduate and graduate music studies at The Juilliard School, where he was recently accepted into the prestigious Artist Diploma program.

He regularly performs internationally at some of the world’s most esteemed festivals and venues, and his 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.
