What we're about

AmateurPianists (https://AmateurPianists.org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded to provide performance opportunities for amateur pianists of all professions and backgrounds. Since its formation in 2011 by Glenn Kramer, 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 (https://AmateurPianists.org/compflyer), the second of which will be held July 13-14, 2019. Classical music should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone, and AmateurPianists serves to facilitate this vision by connecting pianists with audiences.

Board of Directors: Chair - Lulu Hsu, Treasurer - Songqing Wen, Director of Programs - Earlene Dunbar, Director of Technology - Fred Zuill
