Known for his versatility as a pianist and harpsichordist, Andrew Rosenblum excels as both a soloist and collaborative artist in a repertoire ranging from the Renaissance to the modern day.

Andrew won 2nd Prize in the harpsichord category of the 2018 International Bach Competition in Leipzig, Germany. In 2017, he won 2nd Prize in the harpsichord category of the Prague Spring International Music Competition, as well as the prize for the best performance of Harpsycho by Petr Wajsar, which was commissioned for the competition. He has appeared as harpsichord soloist with the Leipziger Barockorchester, the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra, Collegium 1704, and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.

Active in the new music community in Chicago, Andrew performed in all three concerts of the 2017 Chicago Ustvolskaya Festival, and in February 2018 he performed in the Julius Eastman Portrait Concert at the Chicago Cultural Center. Earning praise for his “delicately spun out” and “controlled rendition,” Andrew made his conducting debut, in September 2017, in the New York Opera Society’s production of Gisle Kverndokk's opera Letters from Ruth at the National Gallery of Art. He has performed vocal recitals at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and The Kennedy Center.

Andrew works as a rehearsal pianist for the Chicago Symphony Chorus and the Music of the Baroque Chorus. He plays harpsichord and organ continuo for the Music of the Baroque Orchestra and Haymarket Opera. Since 2015, he has been on the piano faculty of the Heifetz International Music Institute, and he has previously been on the piano staff of the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Northwestern University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus.
