The Pirkanmaa Piano Festival
The Pirkanmaa Piano Festival is held every November. The festival was organised for the first time in 2016. The festival programme includes reviews by young pianists in the Tampere region, master classes for both basic-level music students and those students receiving vocational- or higher-level training, and the event also features at least one piano recital.
A regional competition, the Pirkanmaa Piano Competition, was arranged at the festival for the first time in 2018. In addition to Tampere, one of the competition’s prize-winner concerts was organised in Mänttä-Vilppula.
