Pianofest in the Hamptons Announces 30th Anniversary Season

June 18 - August 13, 2018

 

New York's idyllic coastal enclave features Pianofest in the Hamptons, running from June 18 - August 13. The Pianofest is one of the premiere summertime classical music festivals on the planet.

Founded by Paul Schenly, Pianofest began as a creative vision—a community of pianists and piano-lovers surrounded by nature's wonder of the East End. Each summer since 1988, highly-gifted pianists from major conservatoires continue to travel to the Hamptons to study with luminaries in the piano world. Practice sessions and master classes take place in a classic Hamptons’ manse where eight grand pianos are actively used – including one in the kitchen!


Nearly 500 pianists have passed through the festival-school within its 30-year history, including Deutsche Grammophone recording artist Sergei Babayan and sensational Steinway Artists Anderson & Roe Piano Duo. This summer, Pianofest will highlight its current roster of 24 brilliant artists in-concert throughout Southampton and East Hampton venues.

The concerts feature curated evenings of world-class music and an opportunity to meet-and-mingle with Hamptons' society during post-concert receptions. Below are the schedules for each venue at this magnificent festival:
