Nineth Spring benefit concert by Asheville Area Piano Forum on March 23

The Asheville Area Piano Forum (AAPF) assists their professional pianist- members by providing opportunities to network and establish performance and teaching contacts in the area. In return, these pianists give back to the organization and the music community by performing in two annual benefit concerts, the proceeds of which benefit area students who need assistance to continue their piano studies. According to Kimberly Cann, President of AAPF, in the past five years the Piano Forum has provided over $32,000 in scholarship assistance both for piano study and to attend summer music camps. Many recipients of AAPF scholarships have already received regional recognition for their performances and have continued their piano study in college.
