      Festival for Creative Pianists Scholarship Fund

      Support the Festival for Creative Pianists by contributing to our Scholarship Fund! Our virtual Festival in 2022 will allow us to reach students worldwide with a unique learning experience. With your help, we can strengthen this creative learning opportunity and make it accessible for all participants!

      Your contribution will help provide scholarships to individuals who show financial need and creative motivation. These scholarships will cover 80% of the required enrollment fee to participate in the festival. 

      This festival is the only program of its kind in the world, encompassing classical, jazz and other musical idioms in a social constructivist educational setting. Participants compete for standard baroque through contemporary repertory awards, and/or for novel awards that promote neglected but important creative abilities and repertory - e.g., improvisations (any style), original concerto cadenzas & classical embellishing (skills demonstrated by nearly all great composers yet seldom seen today), versatility (needed to thrive in today's competitive market), lyricism (usually overshadowed by "loud and fast" playing), original compositions (too few venues exist for young serious composers), works by female composers (underrepresented elsewhere), tasteful arrangements & transcriptions (often disallowed in other venues), etc.

      Please use our convenient and secure online giving options or mail your check with Festival for Creative Pianists Scholarship Fund in the memo line to: Abundant Silence, P.O. Box 1254, Montpelier, VT 05601
