Maestro Art is a non-profit organization founded by pianist Chun-Chieh Yen. In 2017, Maestro Art hosted the first Music Fest Perugia in NTNU, with great success. In 2018, Maestro Art created the International Taipei Maestro Piano Festival, with world-renowned pianists from top schools performing on some of the premier stages in Taipei. Now considered one of the top classical music festivals in Taiwan, this festival is notable both for its concert programming as well as its musical training of young-adult musicians. The festival was recently renamed the International Maestro Piano Festival (IMPF).
Our festival not only features master classes, lectures, and faculty concerts, but also gives participants an opportunity to perform in the Promising Star Concert. One winner will be chosen to accompany the Taipei Symphonic Orchestra in one of the most prestigious music venues in Taiwan. From 2017 to 2019, we have had 6 winners, such as Celestine Yoong from Malaysia, Hao-Wei Lin, and Yi Huang from Taiwan (2017), Vincent Ong from Malaysia (2018), and Chinese Pianist Yong-Qiu Liu (2019).
Maestro Art aims to help more young pianists stand out on the international stage. By hosting the International Maestro Piano Festival, we hope to discover the most outstanding young pianists around the world, and help develop their artistic talents.
