Dear Friends,

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the Third Annual North-East Ohio Keyboard Festival. We are delighted to present this festival, which is dedicated to the performance of keyboard music, and hosted by Youngstown State University and the University of Akron. We are excited to share with you the results of months of dreaming and planning.

Since its inauguration in 2015, the North-East Ohio Keyboard Festival has presented a variety of events each year and hosted notable guests. In keeping with that tradition, this festival includes two master classes and four concerts. Additionally, we will host the residency of award-winning pianist Michael Schneider, which is graciously supported by the Robert E. Michael Dana School of Music Piano Endowment and the Dana Piano Guild.

We hope you enjoy our celebration of keyboard music in 2017!

Caroline Oltmanns and James Wilding
