Thank you to all of our supporters, participants, and Artists for making our inaugural pianoSunValley Music Festival, which took place in January 2023, a smashing success!

Discover your individual artistry by engaging with world-class Artists in Residence at the Argyros, a creative new performing arts space.

We are bringing pianoSonoma to Sun Valley in January 2023! As we join this artistically-thriving community, we wish to meld the collaborative heart of pianoSonoma with the cutting-edge possibilities the Argyros has to offer, while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of this vibrant mountain town.

pianoSunValley in Concert

The Argyros presents pianoSunValley in concert on January 6. Classical virtuosity meets contemporary improvisation meets ground-breaking innovation in this eclectic and energizing program featuring classical, jazz, and original compositions. Purchase your tickets here.

Workshop dates: Wednesday, January 4 – Saturday, January 7, 2023

Where: The Argyros in Ketchum, ID

Each participant will be paired with one of our phenomenal Artists in Residence with repertoire decided in consultation with the directors. During the morning workshops, you will have a chance to rehearse with your Artist.

Using the unique space that the Argyros has to offer, participants and Artists will partner with the production team for the final participant concert.
