Aloha International Piano Festival & Competition



Announcing the 15th annual Aloha International Piano Festival and Competition!  October 9 & 10, 2021, Hawaii Theatre Center, Honolulu, Hawaii.

While the COVID-19 pandemic led us to cancel the 2020 Aloha International Piano Festival, we are excited to announce its 2021 program – bringing you live and live-streamed performances from the historic Hawaii Theatre on October 9 & 10, 2021. 

We have revamped the Aloha International Piano Competition to award more than $7,000 in cash prizes to the winners.  A special audience prize has been established and we invite the general public to watch the online competition finals and vote for your favorite pianist.  We hope you will support and participate in this exciting project! 

The 2021 Aloha International Piano Festival & Competition welcomes renowned pianists Jon Nakamatsu, Thomas Sauer, John Bayless, and founder/artistic director Lisa Nakamichi.
