WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL PIANO FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
The goal of our festival - the first and the only piano festival in Washington, D.C. - is to provide the best learning experience for everyone by combining an intensive educational program with an outstanding concert series presented by world-class classical pianists. We invite you to become part of the festival either as an active participant or an observer (see registration). All participants will have the opportunity to work with prominent piano pedagogues in daily one-on-one private lessons and to participate in a piano competition, recitals, educational workshops, lectures and master classes that will focus on both piano solo and piano ensemble repertoire. Selected WIPF participants will also have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform in two concerts at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage. Both concerts are webcast live at www.kennedy-center.org. In addition to the intensive program offerings, participants will have the chance to enjoy and explore the cultural and historical sights of Washington, D.C. including museums, galleries, memorials, monuments, theaters and restaurants. A special sight-seeing city bus tour will be offered to our festival participants and guests.
In addition to presenting some of the best internationally-renowned pianists in recital (see ticket information), we are excited to offer again to the festival participants and audiences the Young Pianist Showcase concert series. These 30-minute concerts, preceding our guest artists' evening concerts, will feature an array of extraordinarily talented young pianists who are prizewinners of local, national and international piano competitions.
last eight editions of the festival we welcomed more than 500 participants,
faculty, and guest artists from all over the world including Japan, South
Korea, China, Australia, Singapore, U.A.E., Argentina, Brazil, Russia,
Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, Germany, France, Italy, and the U.S. They
all made our festival become one of the most successful additions to the
nation's capital's summer cultural life.
