"The Harsh Truth About Being A Pianist"
From Noah Zhou
London, UK
RE: Your Next Big Performance

Dear friend and fellow musician,

We may spend long hours on the daily preparing for the next live performance...  

But when was the last time you actually got to perform with an orchestra?

How would you like to get that opportunity, as soon as this summer?

If that idea sounds at all appealing, then this proposition is ideal for you.
"Why's that?" I hear you ask.

Performing a concerto live is not just one of the most prestigious things a pianist can do... It's also one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences one can have! But the harsh reality for aspiring soloists is that performances with orchestra are few and far between, and most can only hope to get such an opportunity through reaching the final stages of competitions. Far from a reliable strategy!

"Well Of Course! Gathering 40+ Musicians To Accompany A Single Person Is No Easy Task!"


Hi there! My name is Noah Zhou, and I'm the co-artistic director of The Piano Concerto Festival. The Piano Concerto Festival is an annual event that exists with the sole purpose of helping classical pianists gain experience in one of the most important collaborative elements that our field has to offer - performing concerto with not just a second piano, but with a professional orchestra.

As a young pianist myself, I've been lucky enough to have experienced such performances on multiple occasions, mostly through the final stages of competitions, but even to this day, I still encounter unexpected issues when playing with orchestra that I never even consider when in the practice room!

All that time ago, when my teacher assigned me my first piano concerto, I eagerly took on the challenge, excited to bring it to concert - and it took MONTHS to learn... But the opportunity to work with an orchestra never materialised. 

I remember thinking, back then...

"I wish orchestras could be just a bit more accessible..."

"We Spend Hours Upon Hours Perfecting Repertoire...
Shouldn't We At Least Afford Ourselves The Chance To Perform It?"

I've got an amazing event for you in The Piano Concerto Festival.

By hiring our own professional orchestra, we make it easy for you to experience your chosen concerto in all its intended glory from the stage.

And just in case you're not too sure about how you're sounding, we also bring a faculty of internationally recognised professors to give you masterclasses and feedback throughout your stay with us.

Send your application in now and rest assured that we'll be working on a grand welcome for your arrival to The Piano Concerto Festival this July!

At This Point You Might Be Asking...

"Where Has This Festival Sprung Up From And Why Is It Worth My Time?"

I represent a team of classical pianists that just want to give back to others that share our passion for performing, and help them realise their full potential.

"How many times have we seen talented pianists playing impeccably in the eliminatory rounds of a competition only to hear an unprepared concerto in the final round?"

These are words from the founder of The Piano Concerto Festival, Steinway Artist Congyu Wang. But whilst his original founding motivation may have been to aid in the development of individuals fitting the above statement, he also realised that playing with orchestra is a rare opportunity that many young pianists crave for. It's an unfortunate fact in the reality we live in that scarcity in such opportunities can often stunt one's growth as a musician.

And so, in response to the harsh nature of competitions, The Piano Concerto Festival was born.

We're now in the lead-up to our THIRD Edition...

And so rest assured, that before extending you this invitation, we've already run this event successfully on two previous occasions! 

WARNING: I can't promise that your application will be successful, because frankly, I don't know you, and members of the faculty are free to accept students at their own discretion. However, if you are invited, I will guarantee you an intense, yet enjoyable week of learning, with plenty of options for relaxation in your downtime. We also look forward to raising the bar already set by our previous editions!

Our mission is to bring a community of classical pianists together based on their shared passion of performing, and to give them chances to perform. 

I warmly invite you to submit your application for The Piano Concerto Festival!
