The Albion College Piano Festival began in the fall of 2008. It was inspired by the memory of Vera Reed, an Albion resident and piano teacher who taught into her nineties and played even later in her life. While there is a competition element, and students can compete for cash prizes, it is our hope that students will find this festival to be more about performing, meeting and hearing other students, and taking lessons/master classes from Albion Faculty and guest artists. In other words, we view this festival as educational first and foremost.
