Festival LogoCardinal Stritch University, Wisconsin’s first and only All-Steinway School, has hosted the annual festival since 2003. During the past decade, the festival has offered talented young pianists an opportunity to work with internationally acclaimed artists and teachers in an intensive setting. This year's Piano and Voice Festival will feature a high school piano competition, master class for young artists, and a winners' recital. 

In fall 2014, we will inaugurate the Performing Arts Department where Music and Theater programs will be housed. In celebration of the new Performing Arts Department, the festival has been expanded to include voice performance. The festival welcomes high school pianists and singers to compete for awards as well as scholarships to attend Stritch as music majors. The festival offers a workshop, where students perform, observe, and interact with artists of the highest caliber. Also included in the festival is a Master Class for Young Artists, designed for students currently enrolled in college and post-baccalaureate seeking graduate studies in piano. This inspirational and unique learning experience will enhance students’ piano performance skills and musicality.

Register for the Piano and Voice Festival or the Piano Master Class for Young Artists.
