THANK YOU, KEY BISCAYNE!

Dear friends,

KBPFWe are equally inspired and thrilled to finally return with an “in-person” event since the pandemic disrupted our original programming for the 2020/2021 concert season. The Key Biscayne Piano Festival was the first organization to cease all public activities on Key Biscayne during the lockdown, and we are delighted to be the first one to restart cultural activities on the island. A Musical Bouquet for Key Biscayne on the Village Green will be the last concert of the season and surely a must-see event!

First, we are eternally grateful to all the Village of Key Biscayne administration and public safety officials for the exhausting job of protecting the island residents, and in particular, the seniors on the Key.

The Piano Festival would also like to recognize the Key Biscayne Community Foundation for their vital support in ensuring island residents were safe and healthy in a difficult year. They protected the Key by offering personal protection equipment, groceries, and health resources to the island’s senior population; by establishing a highly precise COVID testing site when it was most needed; and by facilitating vaccine appointments for the most vulnerable residents.

Even though the Piano Festival was restricted in hosting in-person concerts during the ’20-’21 Season, we pivoted our live programming to an online platform. Exclusive concerts for Key Biscayne #TheKeyOfArts were streamed free from Italy. Before the start of each concert, and in between musical performances, we displayed stunning images of our beloved island for the world to see. The main piano performer alongside internationally-acclaimed artists have played everything from Baroque to Romantic to Film Scores. A harmonious fusion of instruments, musical genres, and musicians from many nationalities forged energizing productions celebrating diversity.

A highlight of the ’20-’21 season was December’s Christmas Pop Piano Concert, in collaboration with Sony Music Latin and performed by island resident and pianist, Arthur Hanlon. We are happy to say that since posting the concert video on social media we have surpassed 2.5 million views. As with every concert, we promoted Key Biscayne by playing a short video clip highlighting the best the island has to offer.

We are currently working on an exciting ’21-’22 season, intended to continue showcasing Key Biscayne as a cultural beacon in South Florida, while also educating the island youth, and entertaining the piano/music/art enthusiasts on the Key and beyond. With every performance and concert season, we earn slightly more international acclaim for producing high-quality events.

SAVE THE DATE: Friday, May 7th, 2021, at 7:00 PM. Located on Key Biscayne’s Village Green, we will be presenting A Musical Bouquet for Key Biscayne, a picnic concert for Key Biscayne residents and friends, with an inaugural performance by the newly created, Miami Ocean Orchestra ( www.MiamiOceanOrchestra.com ).

We sincerely hope you join us for this magnificent event celebrating Spring, life and the island’s resiliency. Thank you for allowing us to help shepherd the island’s return to cultural programming.
