About the Bermuda Piano Festival
The Bermuda Piano Festival was launched in 2017 by Artistic Director Alex Tuchman in collaboration with the Bermuda School of Music. We are a not-for-profit venture whose mission is to further enrich Bermuda’s cultural landscape through annual performances featuring world-class concert artists and to inspire Bermuda’s music students, who have the opportunity to learn from and interact with the Festival artists in private lessons and master classes.
What distinguishes us from other festivals in Bermuda is our focus on the piano and the diverse solo and chamber repertoire that has been composed for the instrument. Highlights of our 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 offerings 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, we are excited to present our concerts online every Saturday at 8pm (ADT) throughout the month of August. The performances will be available to watch free of charge on our homepage and at www.bermudafestival.org. Additionally, we are pleased to present a series of online master classes and private lessons with the Festival artists from June 22nd – 26th. All interested piano students in Bermuda are encouraged to participate. To register, please click here.
We look forward to welcoming you to our virtual concerts and seeing you at our live performances during the 2022 Bermuda Piano Festival.
