The New York Piano Society, Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated to discovering and developing talented pianists whose primary profession or field of study is in a non-musical area. Founded in 2005 by pianist Elena Leonova, NYPS aims to be New York’s premier organization for pianists of diverse backgrounds and professions, brought together by a shared experience that is founded on their love for the piano and for classical music. NYPS presents gifted pianists from diverse professions (doctors, lawyers, architects, policemen) and cultivates their musical development through public recitals.
NYPS provides regular public recitals, each featuring a selection of our performers, members of NYPS that have been enthusiastically received by our audiences. This format enables us to provide a nourishing environment for the development of the performer and to present a program selection and a variety of solo and chamber repertoire for the enjoyment of the concert-goer. We have presented concerts in New York City at Carnegie Hall (Weill Hall), Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, Baruch Performing Arts Center, Hunter College, Concert Hall of the German Consulate, Steinway Hall and Liederkranz Hall, and in New Jersey at Lenfell Hall of Fairleigh Dickinson University. In addition, NYPS frequently invites distinguished professional artists and gifted young musicians as guest performers. In past seasons we have featured many noted concert instrumentalists, vocalists and professors of leading musical institutions, including the legendary pianist Byron Janis and renowned flutist Carol Wincenc.
NYPS’ mission is to celebrate with our audiences the idea that musical development and enjoyment is a life-long process that is independent of one’s vocational activity. NYPS is a 501(c)3 corporation that is supported by private tax-deductible contributions from individuals and organizations who believe in this mission.
