Southeastern Piano Festival

Each summer the Southeastern Piano Festival transforms Columbia, South Carolina into a major cultural destination that draws in audiences and young piano talent from across the United States. The Southeastern Piano Festival runs June 16-22 in multiple venues around the city and embraces a multi-faceted personality: it is a high-level training platform for the young pianists, a presenter of new and world-renowned concert pianists and master teachers, an advocate for new piano music, and a vehicle for exploring different roles the piano plays on stage and beyond. This season welcomes veterans of stage as well as new exciting talent, including Marc-André Hamelin, Jon Nakamatsu, Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung piano duo, and Conrad Tao.
