Music is enough for a lifetime - but a lifetime is not enough for music.
Piano Island Management Pte. Ltd. was founded in Singapore in 2018, where we pioneered our vision and mission to empower bringing piano lovers together from all over the world to build up on their piano journey. Piano Island Management started it's series of Piano Island Festivals from 2018, where we held our 1st debut edition in Singapore, followed by our 2nd edition in La Reunion Island, 3rd edition back in Singapore, 4th edition online (due to Covid-19), and currently our 5th edition which we are planning to do in Malaysia from the 2nd to 11th of December 2022.
Following the recent success of all our editions, we are proud to present to you our 5th edition of Piano Island Festival 2022. This edition will be exquisite, intimate, and will be the biggest edition by far. We will plan this festival to be held in Malaysia, a place where you can call it truly Asia. We will have Masterclasses, Public Masterclasses, 6 Concerts from our Faculty and Guests, Public Lectures and our Piano Island Competition 5th Edition with amazing prizes to be won. All the winners of the competition will stand a chance to win scholarships to the 6th International Piano Island Festival. The grand prize winner of the competition will also be invited as a jury member for the 6th edition.
In 2019, we received more than 100 applications from all over the world. We witnessed a very high level in the 3rd edition, not to forget the huge success we had in the previous years hosting both 1st and 2nd editions in Singapore and Reunion Island respectively. We can now be assured of the international standard set by our competition prize winners as well as our highly distinguished faculty - Dang Thai Son, Philippe Cassard, Eliane Reyes, Pascal Roge, Aimo Pagin, Antonio di Cristofano, Dario Candela, Benjamin Loh, Dr Nicholas Ong, Dr Kim Bo Kyung, Elena Nesterenko etc.
All of us here at Piano Island Festival strongly believe in the future of classical music, and we wish to be the platform for many emerging artists, to help them take their first steps in their career.
For those of you who are planning to join us in 2022, we, the festival team, are preparing enthusiastically for what we believe will be a satisfying experience for you. We are counting down the days until we welcome you in person!
