Welcome to the
Colorado International Piano Academy & Festival

Welcome to the 2024 Colorado International Piano Academy & Festival! Hosted on the beautiful campus of the University of Northern Colorado and set against the backdrop of the stunning Rocky Mountains, CIPAF promises a full week of exceptional musical experiences, bringing together world-class pianists and renowned pedagogues for an immersive event encompassing concerts, open masterclasses, presentations, and lectures. CIPAF Students will embark on an inspirational and nurturing learning journey as they actively participate in a diverse range of performance opportunities, including concerts, masterclasses, and the CIPAF International Competition.

 

The festival will reach its pinnacle with several evenings of breathtaking performances, showcasing our internationally acclaimed guest artists and distinguished faculty representing prestigious institutions such as The Juilliard School and the China Conservatory of Music.  

 

We warmly invite our local communities in the Northern Colorado region, as well as the general public, to join us for all of our open events and concerts. Once again, I extend a heartfelt welcome to you to join us in this celebration of great music, inspiration, and community through the CIPAF experience.
