Come to the many events the SIPF has to offer, from its bi-annual Seattle International Piano Festival & Competition (the 8th edition taking place October, 2019), to its many NW Festival events for local pianists and violinists, to its KB Piano Series.
2019 Seattle International Piano Competition

Live final round: October, 2019
2019 Classical Viennese Festival
Taking place all day Sunday, March 10, the SIPF presents the 6th annual Classical Viennese Festival for Northwest pianists and violinists. This competitive event was created to showcase classical and pre-classical sonata forms. Important for clarity and formal understanding, the sonata and related classical forms are often neglected or underrepresented in competitive events, and to provide performers with constructive feedback from performing and teaching masters. Participants will receive educational evaluations by performing for adjudicators, and a chance to receive ribbons and trophies during this competitive event.
