2019 Young Pianists Scholarships

Meet young pianists  Melvil Capouto and Maxime Alberti!

We are raising $7,000 to close our $10,000 Scholarship Fund goal. ($3,000 has already been raised, thanks to our loyal partners!)

For each pianist, the scholarship will fund:
     -  Round-trip flights from Paris to New York
     -  IKIF Festival Tuition (2 weeks)
     -  Housing on campus (2 weeks)
     -  Their USA debut at the "Young Artist Recital" in the Consulate of France

·         All donations are tax deductible.
·         Those who donate $100 or more will receive one VIP  ticket to the Young Artist Recital and champagne recital on July 18 .
·         Those who donate $500 or more will receive an invitation for a VIP Tour of the Steinway Factory (in addition to 5 VIP Tickets).

Founded in 2014, with the support of its members and donors, French-American Piano Society has awarded scholarships to 17 young pianists who have earned 2 finalist positions, 6 semi-finalist positions, and $12,000 in combined recital prizes at the IKIF Artist Recognition Scholarship Awards in New York City. As a results, our scholarship program is a career catalyst for young French pianists.

The scholarship recipients are carefully selected by the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris  and the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris-Cortot .

Your gift to French-American Society constitutes a magnificent incentive to these young artists at the start of their careers, while also strengthening ties between France and the United States. To learn more, please visit www.French-American-Piano.org
