This Kickstarter project is to support finically the international Piano Plus music Festival in Athens - Greece for the Summer 2012 (June - July). The festival for this year will be inviting artist from Italy, Russia, United States and other Greek cities in order to perform and share their knowledge and experience with young music students. We will be also inviting students from music universities in order to perform and participate to the masterclasses and seminars. Like every year the main goal of Piano Plus Festival is to give young artist the opportunity to perform and broaden their musical experiences by studying in the capital of Greece, enjoying at the same time the beautiful Greek environment! Guest artists will be performing and teaching at the same time hundreds of young music students from conservatories and Greek Universities who are interested in musical arts. The festival focuses mainly in the field of piano and has totally an educational character.
Money will be used for helping artists and students to move from their countries to Greece for their performances and lessons as well as for advertising, organization and production of the events.
Piano Plus festival is being running since 2006 by volunteers and music students with the support of American universities, music conservatories and universities in Europe. Due to the critical financial situation in Greece, continuity of such projects has become extremely difficult. We do believe that this festival is a great opportunity of creating a network for young musicians to travel and perform all over the world.
