A classically trained violinist and graduate of the renowned Julliard School in New York City, Drew Tretick has garnered many accolades working with some of music's most iconic artists. An interview by Robert Walker, see HubPages.
PERFORMING WITH MIKE GARSON
Drew appeared with Mike Garson (David Bowie's legendary pianist) and orchestra at Segerstrom Hall. A believer in the healing power of music, Garson wrote this Tango for his "Symphonic Suite for Healing." On stage, a 72 year-old woman with Parkinson's proved how compelling music is for symptomatic relief, as she dances effortlessly with her husband.
