Porto Pianofest is a joint production with the Câmara Municipal do Porto (Porto’s City Hall). It is proud to have some of the city’s most important institutions as its partners; such as the Conservatório de Música do Porto and Casa da Música. Porto Pianofest is sponsored by the Luso-American Foundation for Development (FLAD).

We are proud to have pianists Artur Pizarro and Jose Ramon Mendez on board as performing artists and teaching faculty, and Oscar Colomina, Amy Gustafson and Gil Teixeira as our guest artists during this coming season.

Our team of consultants in both Porto and New York work diligently in artistic and logistical planning and development; Porto Pianofest would like to thank them for their contribution.

Its founder and artistic director is the pianist Nuno Marques; the vice-director is the American pianist Mariel Mayz.
