Duets & More!
(Note change in recital date from September to October.) For our October recital, our theme is duets. Of course we would love lots of two piano pieces, but you may also play a duet with another instrument or voice. For example, piano + violin, piano + flute, piano trio or piano quintet. If you would like to perform, please email [masked] with the names of your collaborators, the full name of the piece, the composer, and the duration. Performers, 18 years or older, are allocated a maximum of 10 minutes each. Please submit your request as soon as possible as the program could fill up quickly. Submittals after the Wednesday before the recital are not assured of a performance slot. Musicians are asked to contribute $10.00 each for ensemble performance. Please click here to pay: About AmateurPianists We have monthly recitals for pianists throughout the year with March reserved for women composers and October open to duets and piano ensembles. There is no recital in November and December is for our holiday party.

What we're about

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 (, the first of which was held in 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.
