Dear Friends,


The 14th season of Music without Borders International Piano Festival, slated to return in July 2021 to the Gould Academy campus in Bethel, Maine, has been postponed until July 2022.


Festival Artistic Director Tamara Poddubnaya regrets that restrictions on international travel and other requirements for mitigation of the coronavirus pandemic make it impossible, this season, to produce what has become a summertime tradition in western Maine.


Even though live recitals won't take place on campus this July, Professor Poddubnaya is arranging for video performances by our far flung festival alumni, as well as by one or two young pianists who had planned to make their first appearance in Bethel this summer, to be available for on-line viewing beginning on July 4, the Festival's traditional “opening night".
