The Southeastern Piano Festival will be held at the University of South Carolina June 12 to 18. The festival attracts students from throughout the country to study with top pianists who will give public performances.
A select group of pianists in grades eight through 12 will have a multitude of performing opportunities, daily lessons with USC piano faculty, master classes and conversations with distinguished guest artists, and presentations on a wide variety of piano-related topics. The students also take part in the Arthur-Fraser International Concerto Competition, with the winners performing with the S.C. Philharmonic.
The festival was founded in the summer of 2003 by pianist and music school faculty member Marina Lamozov, who is the director of the festival. Since its inception it has become a major cultural event and a top destination for young piano talent in the US and abroad.
Admission to the concerts is typically $20 (some exceptions apply); $10 for seniors and Music Teachers National Association Members; $5 for students; and free to everyone under 18. Many of the sessions with students are free and open to the public.
