Chicago Piano Festival
Welcome to the 3rd Annual Chicago Piano Festival (August 1; 4-9, 2014)
This is truly a special program that offers you unparalleled opportunities in music instruction and performance in the heart of this beautiful city.
Our outstanding piano faculty are all part of the Northeastern Illinois University music department. Daily symposiums will include master classes where you will have the chance to perform and receive feedback from our faculty, lectures on performance topics, piano literature, and faculty recitals. During the week, you will be working with a group of musicians who share the belief that our most important goal is to encourage the inherent talents of each student.
Your day will be filled with individual lessons on your solo repertoire, coaching for the piano ensembles, practice time, rehearsal time and daily symposiums. The festival will conclude with a performance on Saturday afternoon where you will all have an opportunity to perform in our beautiful recital hall for your family, friends and peers. We will also have evening outings to concerts and events throughout Chicago.
We hope you will be able to come spend a week with us at Northeastern Illinois University for the Chicago Piano Festival this summer!

What people are saying about the Chicago Piano Festival...
The way I look at playing piano has really changed for the better. I now have more confidence in the way that I practice, and have used the advice provided by NEIU faculty when preparing for concerts and judged events. I look forward to auditioning to come back next year!
This was my first Piano Festival and it was a great experience for me to meet and work with other pianists and four professors. I really enjoyed all the individual instruction from Dr. Kim, Dr. Tang, Mr. Zivin and Dr. Anderson. I hope to be part of the group next summer!
I had such a wonderful time at your camp! I felt that I learned so much between a short period of time!! Its crazy! FOR SURE, I walked out of camp as a better piano player!! Thank you so much Dr. Tang for this wonderful camp!!!
