About the Festival:                               

Combining quality musical programs with educational opportunities for young and college age pianists, we hope to provide a welcoming platform for all students interested in classical piano to immerse themselves in the art of keyboard playing. The festival will provide an essential role in the development of young musicians—serving as a source of inspiration, knowledge, and simply one of many elements that lead to the growth of the “complete musician.” Below you will find the most current information about the festival.
