About our concerts


A word about our FREE concerts:

 

 

I am so proud of all the festival students' achievements and am equally thrilled that everyone is so different and unique.

 

 

To Festival Students and my own Alumni:

I am your biggest advocate. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to feature and promote your talents as teachers, performers and mentors to future generations. You are all my favorites. It is my pleasure and honor to help you in your professional lives and watch you build your own careers. I adore the fact that the deep friendships and connections we have made are timeless.

                                   Professor Penneys

 


 

The tradition of featuring and promoting a diverse mix of junior and senior pianists at all points in their career paths has always been a hallmark of my programs and philosophy, and is responsible for the wonderful and worldwide success of RPPF. Festival pianists are exposed to a dazzling array of successful approaches in teaching and performing. I am truly blessed to be able to continue and expand my viewpoints during RPPF on beautiful Steinway pianos in a Florida paradise at the new University of South Florida School of Music in Tampa.

"Rebecca Penneys Piano Festival in Florida was a life-changing experience for me! It was so wonderful to study with great faculty members, young and old, to make friends with great pianists from all over the wold, and to enjoy music, sunshine and the beach together! I love RPPF!".......Tong Zhang, China, Northwestern University
