PianoFête 2024

July 10 @ 7:25 pm - July 13 @ 9:00 pm

PianoFête 2024

 

PianoFête has caught the attention of increasing numbers of pianists nationwide and the ears of piano music lovers in the Pacific Northwest. 

Each summer, Fête Curator and award-winning pianist Vyacheslav Gryaznov selects four acclaimed musicians to join him for a residency on Vashon Island. Working together, they create four entirely different programs from their combined repertoire. (VCA will announce the pianists and nightly programs in the coming weeks!) 

PianoFête is unique among other piano festivals across the country in that it features two beautiful Steinway Concert Grands on stage, throughout the festival. Each evening’s performance showcases a different soloist, who is then joined by one (or more!) of their colleagues to close the program playing four-hand piano, and piano duos.  

The PianoFête finale features Fête Curator Vyacheslav Gryaznov, culminating with all four pianists on both pianos accompanied by the Vashon Maury Chamber Orchestra. It’s a finish to resonate in the hearts of all those who are lucky enough to attend!
