Biography

Born: January 11, 1955 - Washington D.C., USA

Among the world’s premier counter-tenors, Drew Minter began his musical pursuits at the age of 9 as a boy treble at the Washington National Cathedral. He studied first at Indiana University, where he received his B.S. in Music and Languages in 1977, then at the Vienna Musikhochschule where he received his Diploma in Lieder and Oratorio in 1979. Twice he won prizes at the Bruges Early Music Competition, in 1977 as a member of the Collegium Musicum Budapest, and again in 1983 as a soloist. He also won prizes at the ‘s-Hertogenbosch International Singing Competition in 1976 and the 1981 Erwin Bodky Prize for Early Music in Boston. Subsequently, he was also awarded Martha Baird Rockefeller and Fulbright study grants.

Drew Minter is a founding member of The Newberry Consort, which is in its 18th season. In addition to a number of acclaimed recordings on Harmonia Mundi USA, the Consort gives a regular season of concerts in the Chicago area and tours once or twice a season nationally. He collaborates frequently with the Folger Consort, ARTEK, Pomerium and other American early music ensembles. For several seasons in the early 1990s he directed and sang in Ensemble Five/One, a Washington-based vocal chamber music group. With Five/One he created programs and season brochures and designed a series of concerts in historic churches.
