Aruba Piano Festival 9-22-28-2008
http://www.arubapianofestival.com/

The ARUBA PIANO FESTIVAL, established in 2006, takes place annually late in September. During one week, festival events include recitals, master classes, programs for children, and a piano competition.

The festival, probably the most important annual classical musical event in the Caribbean region, has become known for its unique and imaginative programming, an impressive roster of musicians, the welcoming beauty of the unique performance location, and a passionate commitment to artistry of the highest integrity.

The festival strives to create an atmosphere that fosters earnest interaction between performers, audience, and the music itself, appreciated equally by those new to chamber music and by connoisseurs who value the intimacy and intensity of the music experience.

The distinctive programming vision that characterizes the choice of artists and repertoire each year and the exceptionally high quality of the musicians who perform here offer an altogether enchanting, richly rewarding, and quite unforgettable chamber concert experience. We hope you will join us on this journey and be enchanted, enthralled, enriched and even, once in a while, enraged as we explore beyond our everyday lives, concerns and responsibilities.
