Our 2022 festival

Our 2022 festival takes place from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th September 2022. Each year we host an exciting programme of piano concerts, featuring original collaborations between our artists across a variety of classical genres, not to mention our Jazz Day that features a lunchtime and evening concert. Our full festival programme will be announced soon.

Meet our 2021 artists

The 2020 Piano Festival was cancelled, and until August 31st this year it was not certain that the 2021 Festival would take place. But it did. There was a limited capacity live audience, who heard nine concerts performed by some wonderful and varied pianists from all over Europe. The musicians were as happy as the audience to be part of live performances once again. You can read reviews of the events here

Our 2021 festival featured an outstanding lineup of artists, including Philippe Cassard, Cédric Pescia, Charles Owen, Katya Apekisheva, Christian Chamorel, Einav Yarden, Tiffany Qiu, Jason Rebello, Artistic Director Finghin Collins & many more.

Our festival story

In 2006 our piano festival began with a clear vision, to celebrate the piano and invite world-class pianists to perform in our local town of New Ross. Year on year we host an exciting programme of piano concerts, featuring original collaborations between our artists across a variety of classical genres, plus a whole day dedicated to jazz piano.
