PianoSummer is an international summer program dedicated solely to piano music. It features an integrated approach to learning and performance under the artistic direction of master pianist and teacher Vladimir Feltsman. Gifted students from around the world join with devoted musicians and teachers to learn more about the art of the piano and, ultimately, more about themselves and their place in the world of music.

Founded in 1991, SUMMIT MUSIC FESTIVAL assembles a faculty of the highest caliber, representing the finest traditions of Europe, Asia and the American continents, to offer concentrated study in ensemble and orchestral programs to talented students from all over the world.   Efrem Briskin, Artistic Director and David Krieger, Executive Director began with a small summer music camp program which transformed into a summer music festival of the highest quality with an international character. By 1993 they had established the basic structure of its present program to serve serious pre-professional musicians from all over the world and offer its host community an exciting array of chamber music and orchestral concerts.

 Every summer, from more than 40 countries, musicians take part in the ACADEMY which is very internationally combined. Our Team will gladly greet all of you, musicians!
