of the 2013 WIPF
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 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.
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 living and studying in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan
area who are prizewinners of local, national and international piano competitions.
