The inaugural Tianjin Juilliard Piano Festival (TJPF) took place from July 30 to August 13, 2023 at The Tianjin Juilliard School in China.  

The festival inspired and encouraged music-making of the highest levels, offering two weeks of rich and vibrant programs. Piano participants gained invaluable experience working alongside the world's finest pianists and teachers through master classes and private lessons, including the exclusive opportunity of performing concertos with the Suzhou Symphony Orchestra and prominent conductors. 

TJPF offered a total of two concerto concerts, a final gala concert conducted by Chen Lin, three performances by eminent artists, 12 public master classes, 12 participant recitals, several lectures, and more than 250 hours of private lessons.  

With a line-up of stellar artists, the festival aimed to create a world-class event for young pianists and the music-loving community to come together for an experience to remember. 

It is our pleasure welcoming you to participate in the Tianjin Juilliard Piano Festival. We have assembled the highest-level pedagogues and performers from around the world to provide you with an exciting and inspiring educational experience this summer. The variety of musical activities and the unique opportunities will make this an unforgettable festival.
