PianoForte Foundation is dedicated to preserving and promoting the art of the piano in Chicago and creating a vibrant piano community that closely connects audiences and artists. We bring excitement and appreciation for piano music to a wide audience through high-quality concerts, festivals, competitions, education, outreach, and public broadcasts.

We achieve this mission by:

  • Producing small, intimate events that encourage communication between artist and audience
  • Making events affordable ($0-$25) and approachable to all, regardless of musical knowledge or experience
  • Supporting and presenting today's most exceptional professional and amateur pianists
  • Partnering with a variety of other organizations to bring music into surrounding communities with performance, piano donation, radio broadcasts, and workshops
