We regret to relay that, due to illness, Yefim Bronfman as cancelled all his performances this week, including his concert on Sunday, April 2 as part of our Skyline Piano Artist Series. However, we are pleased to announce that acclaimed American pianist Drew Petersen has graciously agreed to perform in his stead.

The New York Times raves that Drew Petersen “had technique to spare during the dazzling episodes, and plumbed the piece for tenderness and lyricism that many pianists gloss over.” BBC Music Magazine praised his first solo recording of American music on the Steinway label, citing his “stunning, full-bodied sound” and “superb technique.” The acclaimed pianist is the recipient of the 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the 2017 American Pianists Award, and was named the Christel DeHaan Fellow of the American Pianists Association. He has appeared with the Houston, Phoenix, Tucson, Pacific, Milwaukee, and Indianapolis Symphony Orchestras, as well as in solo recitals at the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, University of Indianapolis, and Dame Myra Hess Concerts in Chicago. During the 2022-23 season, his engagements include chamber music, orchestra, and recital performances throughout the US, with a special performance at New York’s 92nd Street Y.
