This summer, the Southeastern Piano Festival is celebrating 20 years of presenting the best of emerging and world-renowned piano talent to audiences in the Southeast and beyond from June 12-19.

As always, the week-long festival culminates with the Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition, where festival participants compete for over $10,000 in prizes and the opportunity to perform a complete concerto with the South Carolina Philharmonic. Applications are now open! Full guidelines and eligibility are available on the SEPF website.

Festival highlights include masterclasses with guest artists, public performances for all participants, and daily lessons with Southeastern Piano Festival faculty. All participants receive full or partial scholarships to attend the festival.

A number of events during the festival will take place on The Concert Truck, a mobile concert stage that was the conceived by Nicholas Luby and Susan Zhang. They took The Concert Truck “all over the country” this past year, and their endeavor has brought music to dozens of locations during the pandemic that otherwise would not have had access to live music.  They have given over 100 concerts in the past year and are on the roster of Opus 3 Artists.
