Drew S. is a standout among theater and opera audiences, recognized for his “stunning tenor voice” by BroadwayWorld.com. The Richmond, Virginia native holds a B.M. from The Juilliard School, and also attended Elon University.
Drew made his Off-Broadway debut as Matt the Mute in The Fantasticks. He also performed in Sweeney Todd as their Standby Anthony/Tobias/Beadle at Barrow St. Theater. Seigla was last seen as Pertshik in the Off-Broadway hit Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish at Stage 42, directed by theater legend Joel Grey.
Drew made his Opera debut with Lyric Opera Virginia. He has also performed with Opera North, Aspen Opera Theater, and City Lyric Opera. During the pandemic, he participated in multiple opera performances in NYC with renowned pianist Michael Fennelly. Most recently he sang the role of Bruno in the world premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon’s The Garden of The Finzi-Continis with New York City Opera.
Drew’s teaching philosophy is based on the idea that knowledge inspires power. Power, in turn, transforms into self-confidence. This allows students to succeed in their singing, and more importantly, in their lives.
To Drew, beautifully impressive singing is a subjective viewpoint from the listener, and therefore cannot be linked with perfection. While there are certain vocal techniques he’s learned that he does advocate teaching, these ideas or vocal rules can be broken. What’s most important is that students find their own unique sound and style that feels good to them. Drew feels lessons should be fun, inspiring, and rewarding!
