Welcome to 2022 PianoTexas!

Since 1981, our mission has been to honor the greatness of piano music and to preserve the traditions of the best of piano playing.

Over the years, PianoTexas has established a global reputation as the premier summer Piano Festival. It is the place to experience the sublime beauty of classical music and the wealth of piano repertoire. In 2022, our program includes the opportunity to attend the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, which together with the PianoTexas programs can be a dynamic life changing experience for our participants.

I cordially invite you to peruse this website and join us on an exciting journey. We are committed to present a festival of excellence, encompassing superb programs of performance and learning for Young Artists, Juniors, Teachers and Amateurs.

PianoTexas offers you an unprecedented opportunity to immerse yourself in the vast world of piano music. Come join us in the Van Cliburn Concert Hall on the TCU campus and in the Bass Hall in downtown Fort Worth throughout the month of June where you will come away with an unforgettable experience for years to come.
