Funding and Support

The Oxford Piano Festival provides unique opportunities for aspiring young pianists to learn directly from some of the world’s foremost artists and pedagogues.

However, there is a substantial cost involved in fulfilling our educational mission, and we are always seeking support for the Festival in order to maintain this provision.

Running Costs

The Piano Festival costs the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra over £150,000 each year. Of this total, only £75,000 is covered by ticket sales and Festival fees.
