A champion of Art Songs, Andrew White has distinguished himself in recitals of Melodies, Lieder, and Contemporary American Art Song, including several premiere performances. In 1995, he made his New York recital debut in Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall in a program devoted to the songs of Cleveland composer Frederick Koch. One review hailed him as "... a formidable interpreter ... Every song composer should be so lucky with collaborators."

As an academic, his paper, "Towards an Understanding of Wagnerian Music-Drama" was published in Music Research Forum (1999). His ongoing studies of vocal pedagogy are numerous and varied and include the Oberlin Summer Institute with Richard Miller, the McClosky Institute of Voice, and the LoVetri Method of Musical Theatre Pedagogy.
