Now celebrating its 60th year, this weekend-long celebration consists of multiple concerts and performances by students from all over the region. This festival was the catalyst for the founding of our School in 1964 and has become a tradition for students in grades K-12.
Over the years, the festival concerts have celebrated both a student’s first performance and the exciting accomplishments of more mature artists. A variety of styles and teaching methods are presented through these performances in a non-competitive manner that stimulates the local music community.
In 2004, it was with great honor that we renamed this long-standing Belmont Piano Festival after Mildred P. Freiberg. Mildred Freiberg was a highly esteemed pianist, educator, and mentor to many and was a former Powers Music School Board President and one of the founders of our School.
