The International Keyboard Institute & Festival is now preparing for its 21st Season taking place July 14-28, 2019. We hope that you enjoyed attending the acclaimed concerts, lectures and masterclasses last season. In 2019, IKIF is proud to present six Masters Series evening concerts in MERKIN HALL at Kaufman Music Center in NEW YORK during Week One. All Prestige Concerts and Week Two Masters Series Concerts will be presented in LANG RECITAL HALL at HUNTER COLLEGE (68th St. between Park & Lexington) as well as classes and special events in Lang Recital Hall.

In 2019 IKIF will offer recitals by returning guests appearing in MERKIN HALL including: Vladimir Feltsman, George Li, Jeffrey Swann, Alon Goldstein, and new guest artist Vadym Kholodenko. Hunter College’s Geoffrey Burleson will perform in Lang Recital Hall as well as returning faculty artists Magdalena Baczewska, Massimiliano Ferrati, Yuan Sheng, and Ilya Yakushev. New faculty artists appearing in Lang include Sean Chen and Ian Fountain. New guest artist Pavel Nersessian will give classes. Also appearing in Lang will be our 2018 IKIF Scholarship Award First Prize winner, Martín García García. On Saturday afternoon mid-Festival Jeffrey Siegel presents a Keyboard Conversations® concert with commentary on Bach and Chopin.

Last season we offered over 50 scholarships to participants of merit worldwide who seek out IKIF for an intensive two weeks of masterclasses, concerts, and lectures on the art of the piano. We are committed to keeping tuition and ticket prices low in order to serve the community. As a non-profit 501(c) 3 publicly funded charity, IKIF relies on contributions by the general public.
