The Summer Piano Institute, hosted by the School of Music at the University of Illinois, offers advanced study for serious pianists, including graduate, undergraduate, and a limited number of highly qualified pre-college musicians prepared for artist-level study. Participants benefit from individual lessons with world-renowned faculty, daily master classes, performance opportunities, access to Steinway grand pianos, and recitals by both faculty and students.

This truly unique and elite institute also features a concerto competition, available to all participants, with an opportunity to perform with Sinfonia da Camera, the resident professional orchestra of Krannert Center for the Performing ArtsRead more about the competition.
