We are incredibly grateful to the Inaugural Florida International Toy Piano Festival participants who believed in our vision from submitting their applications in 2015, to attending the festival in January 2016, and continuing to spread the word to their colleagues across the world. It is because of this support that we received many wonderful applications for the 2017 toy piano festival. It is hard to believe that 2017 is just the second year of this festival as it promises to be bigger and better than the last! We are truly thankful for everyone who has contributed to the festival by submitting applications for consideration, spreading the word about our festival, and for the generosity of donors across the globe that make this festival possible. There were many fabulous submissions and we were forced to narrow down the list of accepted participants, but we hope that those who were not chosen this year will consider applying in future years as our festival grows and receives more funding to facilitate an increased number of events and participants! Congratulations to all of the composers, performers, and lecturers chosen to participate in the 2017 Florida International Toy Piano Festival!
