The Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival is so happy to welcome you to our 2nd season!
I am so pleased that our inaugural season was wildly successful! Our new festival home and our strong community of inspiration, energy and love made our first summer season glorious and unforgettable. RPPF is the sequel to my Chautauqua piano program. The RPPF video (above) will give you an excellent feel for the new festival! I invite you to apply to RPPF where you can explore your identity as a pianist and freely and truly find the peace to develop your artistic dreams. Come to Florida, join us, immerse yourself in piano, and enjoy our spectacular new location. RPPF is tuition-free. It is my gift to all young aspiring pianists.
2014 Dates -- July 16 -Aug 1 -- Tuition-Free at USF, Tampa

"I had an incredible time at the first RPPF. The program offered true learning experience in daily lessons and master classes with many wonderful professors from the top universities. The recitals given by the faculty were amazing and motivating. The new music building at USF offered us a great facility and perfect condition to work in and enjoy. I am very grateful to have been part of this amazing journey of music with so many great, hard-working friends and inspiring teachers. Thank you!".....Aran Kim, Korea, University of Arizona
