About the Festival

Welcome to the East/West International Piano Festival website!

After the most successful two years in Weihai and Hangzhou, we are excited to welcome students and faculty alike to the 2018 East/West International Piano Festival, which will be held from July 9 to July 21 at the Shenzhen Futian International & Fine Arts School in Shenzhen, China. The Festival is open to gifted students of all ages, and acceptance is determined through submission of audio files of the student’s performances, as well as teacher recommendations. Shenzhen is a beautiful city in China, with many picturesque sites and opportunities for the participants.

The 2016 Festival was held at Shandong University in Weihai, China, and included a faculty of eight celebrated international pianists/teachers, as well as 27 students from the United States, China and Japan. The Festival included successful solo and ensemble concerts by the students and faculty, as well as master classes, individual lessons, ensemble coachings, and excursions to nearby historical sites. The 2017 Festival was held at the Liangzhu International Arts Academy, including faculty from the previous festival year and six new highly celebrated pianists/teachers. With 35 students participating, the festival continued to shine with outstanding solo and ensemble recitals by both faculty and students, informative master classes and lecture recitals, coachings, and private lessons.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 East/West International Piano Festival!

Application Deadline: June 1, 2018
