The SIPF Seeks Hosts

The SIPF seeks generous and hospitable people — particularly those with a piano — to host one of the many international artists coming to compete in the final round of the Seattle International Piano Competition between October 16 and 19.

Those who have hosted before have truly loved the experience and built strong, lasting friendships. The artists who travel at their own expense to perform at Benaroya Hall have invested much and are in need of assistance.

They are also brilliant pianists and consummate artists.

The difficulty in making it to the live final round is daunting. Those chosen to appear in Seattle faced odds of one to nine to make it to the finalist’s circle. These artists, from Korea, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, and many other places, face great challenges and have made great sacrifices to be where they are today.

They need your help!
