The Bermuda Piano Festival was launched in 2017 by Artistic Director Alex Tuchman in collaboration with the Bermuda School of Music. The Festival seeks to enrich Bermuda’s cultural landscape further through annual concerts featuring renowned performing artists and aims to inspire Bermuda’s music students to learn from the Festival artists in master classes and private lessons.
Highlights of past Festival programmes include centenary tributes to Scott Joplin and Thelonious Monk (2017); Leonard Bernstein at 100 (2018); and a survey of the Russian piano literature (2019) that included solo and chamber works by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Alexander Scriabin, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Nikolai Medtner, Sergei Prokofiev, and Dmitri Schostakovich.
After three successful seasons of collaboration with the Bermuda School of Music, the natural progression of the Bermuda Piano Festival was to align with an organization dedicated to presenting performances for the Bermuda public. As of 2021, we are pleased to present our events in collaboration with the Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts. Founded in 1976, the Bermuda Festival is a highlight of Bermuda’s entertainment calendar. Its annual events cover the entire spectrum of the performing arts and feature a diverse roster of local and internationally acclaimed artists.
This summer, our concerts will be streamed on our homepage and at bermudafestival.org every Saturday in August (August 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th) at 8pm Bermuda time and will be available to view thereafter. Additionally, we offered a series of master classes and private lessons for students of all ages and levels, free of charge, from June 22nd – 26th.
We look forward to welcoming you to our online concerts and seeing you at our live performances in 2022!
