The Summer Piano Institute at the University of Illinois offers advanced study for young pianists. Participants will benefit from individual lessons with each SPI faculty member, attendance at daily master classes and access to newly renovated practice rooms all equipped with Steinway grand pianos. Included with the program are performance opportunities and admission to faculty recitals.

For 2019, we are pleased to continue the concerto competition available to all participants for the opportunity to compete for a performance with Sinfonia da Camera, the resident professional orchestra of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, University of Illinois.
