Our History

About pianoSonomapianoSonoma co-founders and Artistic Directors Jessica and Michael Shinn met as students at The Juilliard School in New York City, and after spending time in the beautiful wine regions of California, the two Yamaha Artists were inspired to create a summer music festival in Sonoma County. The combination of wine and music is a natural fit, and the location is a beautiful one for musical stimulation.

After launching the festival in 2011, which is partially geared towards adult musicians of all backgrounds, they launched the Young Artist program in 2012, which has now evolved into a prestigious Artist in Residence program, bringing the next generation of professional musicians to the area to collaborate with pianoSonoma’s adult participants.

About pianoSonomaThis intersection of musicians has nurtured new musical friendships and rewarding artistic endeavors that continue to grow even beyond pianoSonoma.
