As a video producer I've the opportunity to work with multiple non-profit organizations, but I have to be honest and admit that the efforts of Patrons go far beyond duty and it really touches me to see what they do every day. This is a great opportunity to share with the world.

Over 10 years ago my husband was taking piano lessons from Giselle Brodsky. She explained her dream to have a venue for pianists, not a competition, but a gathering of talented new comers from all over the world where they would meet, play a program of their choosing and exchange ideas: this was the beginning of the Miami Piano Festival. It is truly a unique concept and every year we look forward to programs where the creativity of Giselle Brosky and the talent of our artists will be showcased like nowhere else.

Spread the love and knowledge of classical music through some programs in school. Our prodigies' taped programs would be inspiring a new generation of music supporters.

As President of Broward County Music Teachers Association and as a teacher of students of all ages and levels, I can attest to the contribution made by the Patrons of Exceptional Artists. We bring our students to the concerts, knowing they will be seeing the highest level of playing and hearing the consumate artistry of talented individuals. We especially enjoy the concerts where the close-up of the hands of the performer as he / she is performing is shown on the overhead screen.

Wow, what an amazing array of talent. I particulary enjoy the Prodigies. They may have small hands but they compensate with speed. I can only wonder where their skills will take them. It is exciting to be there at their inception. As for the other artists, they are simply amazing. Thank you for the wonderful pleasures and enjoyment of this richly rewarding expierence.

I like that the Miami International Piano Competition schedules 4 or 5 nights of concerts in a row in Miami Beach in May. This creates a feeling of a piano festival. There is always a great concluding night concert which includes an orchestra. The pricing for the complete week's package is convenient and a great value too. The quality of the pianists is first rate. This event is a great asset to the cultural life of Miami!

patrons of exceptional artists has a superb record of presenting musicians at the beginning of their careers who subsequently became major international artists. the concerts were superb and the experience of being there at the start has been exciting and rewarding. it is amazing and gratifying that this group is in miami and not new york. i have been attending their concerts since the beginning.
