A Note About VIPA Festival

At VIPA, we believe in providing not only a prime musical opportunity for emerging composers and pianists from around the globe but also an immersion into the cultural life of Valencia, one of the oldest and most culturally-rich cities in Spain and in all of Europe. For this reason, and although we contemplated moving the events of VIPA online for 2021, we decided against it, as too much would be lost of what VIPA really is and what it was founded it to be.

We will miss hearing the premieres of brilliant new works by the new generation of composers and those of our esteemed faculty, as well as the conversations and wonderful meals together. We will miss enjoying wonderful piano playing by students and faculty surrounded by the historic walls of Centre del Carmen. We hope to be back after the pandemic abates, revitalized and in full force!

On behalf of the VIPA team, we wish you a safe and prosperous 2021.

With all our best,

The VIPA Festival Staff
