International Piano Series

Bringing world-class artists to Charleston’s center stage

Presented by the College of Charleston School of the Arts, the International Piano Series is Charleston's longest running, year-round program with a pure focus on piano. Consistent with the School of the Arts’ mission, the International Piano Series plays a distinctive role in the lives of students and the community by implementing excellence in the arts and education and cultivating piano music appreciation.

Each year, the International Piano Series stages concerts for pianists hailing from the United States and around the world.  While on campus, the guest artists offer masterclasses, in which students perform and receive critique. These masterclasses are open to the public. The performers range from young professionals emerging onto the world stage to seasoned performers with long-established careers.  They all bring their unique approach to their instrument and contributions to the field. 

As such, they are role models to our students and a source of sophisticated entertainment for our community.  The concerts take place on the College's picturesque campus and other historic venues in the city. Funded entirely by donations and ticket sales, the performances are offered to the community at affordable prices and are free for students and people under the age of 18.  Proceeds from ticket sales and donations ensure the longevity of the program and support educational opportunities for music students.

The International Piano Series is one of the many programs offered by the Department of Music.  For more information about Music education at the College of Charleston and a message from the Chair, visit the Department of Music online.
