Friday at 2: Drew Petersen


On the next Friday at 2 we’ll welcome 19 year old pianist Drew Petersen. Drew is performing Friday evening for the Haywood County Arts Council’s Young Artist Concert, and will give us a preview of that program.  

Drew graduated in May from Harvard Extension School and from a two-year diploma program at Juilliard. Petersen has studied in Tolentino, Italy, Verbier, Switzerland, and Leipzig, Germany, and has participated in several international festivals and prestigious competitions. In the United States he participated in the 2011 Hilton Head International Young Artist Piano Competition where he received the second prize. 

Drew and his mother were featured on Katie Couric’s January 8th program highlighting families with exceptional children.

Please join us for this week's Friday at 2 for an exceptional program with pianist Drew Peterson.
