Author Bio:  Drew McManus
Musician, manager, and cultural entrepreneur Drew McManus has been involved with every aspect of nonprofit performing arts and charitable organizations. He has become one of the most unique individuals in this industry who is trusted and respected by administrators, academics, board members, music directors, musicians and union officials alike.

Currently, Mr. McManus works as a self employed Arts Consultant with a wide range of clients from orchestra administrations and orchestra players associations. In 2005, Mr. McManus was among the first U.S. cultural administrators and journalists to spend more than a full week in Caracas, Venezuela as an official guest of the government to study the Fundacion del Estado para el Sistema Nacional de las Orquestras Juveniles e Infantiles, commonly referred to as “El Sistema,” which resulted in the first detailed series of articles in the U.S. highlighting the program and its accomplishments.

When he isn’t working 14 hour days, Mr. McManus spends time with his wife, avoids cutting off his fingers while pursing his love for woodworking, and playing with his three cats; Carmen, Tosca, and Cody.

Mr. McManus was the original author of New Classical and during that time published 63 articles from February 2004 to May, 2007.
