In 2009, the Steinway Society, a registered Non Profit Organization, was launched in response to a need for more affordable piano performances in South Jersey, as well as offering financial and achievement awards for talented young piano students who compete in the annual Young Pianist Competition.
To provide interested piano students with encouraging opportunities to compete in small events for financial and achievement awards that acknowledge motivation and accomplishment.
To provide our guest concert artists with an opportunity to perform in the Steinway Recital Hall at Jacobs Music of Cherry Hill.
To plant the seeds of culture and musical enjoyment in the young people of our region, ensuring that the mission of our Steinway Society will succeed well into the future.
The Young Pianist Competition is a yearly event that gives young pianists a chance to showcase their performing abilities in front of a panel of judges. Judges, not only listen to the performances, but give feedback to the performers to help them improve, in a friendly environment.
The Steinway Society of South Jersey concert series was started to provide an intimate performance venue for piano students, piano teachers, and people who just love piano music. We feature both Classical Piano Concerts as well as Jazz Piano Concerts.
The Steinway Society of South Jersey offers audio recordings from the Young Pianist Competition and are professionally recorded by mSound Recording Studios. Listening to these recordings gives you a perspective of the musicianship of these young people. Currently available are the 2016 and 2017 finalist concerts which were held at Stockton University. Enjoy!
