Get To Know Piano Cleveland

Through our focus on local impact, Piano Cleveland promotes Cleveland, Ohio as an international destination for the future of piano music. We strive to continually innovate competition and concert programming, create education programs for students of all ages, and establish community engagement initiatives that create experiences for piano enthusiasts of all ages, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds. Together, we hope to ignite a passion for piano in our community and enrich the lives of those who participate in our programs.


In an effort to support the future of piano music and artists during the pandemic, we hosted our first-ever online piano competition, Virtu(al)oso, and introduced remote programs like Virtual PianoKids and The Quarantine Concerts that put music into homes across the world. And, in 2021, we brought back our signature event, the Cleveland International Piano Competition (CIPC) to celebrate the exceptional young pianists from around the globe.
