Dear Friends,


The Music without Borders International Piano Festival returns for its 14th season on the Gould Academy campus in Bethel, July 10-30. Forced to pause local activities for two seasons during the pandemic, Artistic Director Tamara Poddubnaya will again welcome young pianists from the U.S., Canada, and Europe for this period of intensive piano study and frequent free public performances.

The first public recitals will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 12 and 13, then every Tuesday and Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, continuing through the closing program on Saturday, July 30. All recitals will begin at 7:30 p.m. Unless otherwise announced, recitals will be held in air-conditioned Trustees Auditorium of the McLaughlin Science Center on the Gould campus. Admission is free. Reservations are not necessary, but seating is limited. Audience members are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated and boosted, appropriate for age and risk, and if at higher risk, to wear masks. Additional special programs will be announced during the regular evening programs and on-line at
