There is availability for up to (8) pianists to join us. A performance fee of $20 pay-for-play fee goes directly towards our operating costs. To perform, please email AmateurPianists11@gmail.com and include the name of the piece(s), the composer(s) full name, and duration (up to 10 minutes). Payment of $20 can easily be made online through our Chip in feature by clicking here (https://secure.meetup.com/Amateur-Pianists-San-Diego/contribute/).

    What we're about

    Public Group

    AmateurPianists is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2011 by Glenn Kramer to provide performance opportunities for amateur pianists of all professions and backgrounds. Since its formation, membership has grown to make us the largest piano meetup group in the world. Performances are held at various venues—from recital halls and libraries, to churches and private homes. The group also provides educational opportunities, such as masterclasses and lectures on performance practice, the history of classical music, and much more, including the San Diego International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs (http://amateurpianists.org/competition3) which took place from July 15–17, 2016. Classical music should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone, and AmateurPianists serves to facilitate this vision by connecting pianists with audiences.

    Board of Directors (as of February 2018): Lulu Hsu, Chair, Gwen Barriac, Secretary, Songqing Wen, Treasurer, John Evans, Director, Galina Shekhtman, Director, Earlene Dunbar, Director, Mark Chen, Director
