The Dublin International Piano Festival has a reputation for fostering excellence in piano, creating innovative programmes that are cutting edge in training future generations of musicians. By offering a grant, or providing accommodation, you can help shape the talents of tomorrow and experience something truly unique.
How you can help us:
… by offering crucial financial support to make artistic and educational projects of the Festival possible
… by actively contributing to the logistics of the Festival, through volunteering, housing Artists and/or Summer Academy members and organising meals
… by committing yourselves to promote the festival in Ireland and abroad!
DIPF needs your support to continue investing in new artistic and educational projects!
Sponsor a young pianist
DIPF offers a variety of financial support to Summer Academy participants, including personal scholarships donated from community members. We welcome contributions to our students’ expenses of all sizes, and encourage scholarship donors to set up a grant in their own name or that of a loved one and to form a relationship with the recipient during the festival.
A €500 grant will partially cover tuition costs for one scholarship recipient. Donors will receive a festival pass for all concerts during the festival.
A €1000 grant will cover tuition costs for one scholarship recipient. Donors will receive a festival pass for all concerts, masterclasses, and seminars during the festival.
A €2000 grant will cover tuition, accommodation, and partial travel costs for one scholarship recipient. Donors will receive a festival pass for all concerts as well as two tickets to the opening and closing receptions.
A €3000 grant will cover travel, accommodation, and tuition costs for one scholarship recipient. Donors will receive a festival pass for all concerts as well as VIP access to all events, excursions, meals, and receptions during the festival.
Host a young pianist
What better way to give a visiting musician a taste of Irish hospitality than by hosting them in your home? DIPF is looking for families interested in hosting a Summer Academy participant during their 9-day stay in Dublin. We ask that willing families provide a single room and daily breakfast for the pianist, and hosts can expect the student to be away from their home for the majority of the day, returning in the evening after dinner.
We are deeply appreciative of any volunteers, and students truly enjoy the chance to get to know a local family while sharing their own culture and musicianship with their hosts.
