Drew Petersen

Drew Petersen, a pianist and University of Indianapolis artist-in-residence, received the prestigious 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant on Thursday.

Petersen, 24, joins the ranks of Indiana’s own violinist Joshua Bell, who won the grant as a teenager and later went on to receive the $75,000 Avery Fisher Prize in 2007.

In a ceremony at a performance space at WQXR, New York’s classical music radio station, Petersen accepted the award and performed the fugue from Samuel Barber’s “Piano Sonata.”

His performance will be broadcast on the radio station and its website wqxr.org at 9 p.m. April 24.
