The Aloha International Piano Festival (AIPF) invites piano students from around the world to apply to compete in the 2021 Virtual Aloha International Piano Competition.  AIPF offers aspiring pianists the opportunity to share their talents at a prestigious event that fosters a spirit of healthy competition.
