Concerts, Lectures and Masterclasses are planned as part of the 2015 Seventeenth Season of the International Keyboard Institute & Festival which will take place from July 18 - August 2.

In 2015, IKIF will move to Hunter College in New York City, with performances taking place at The Kaye Playhouse (68th Street between Park & Lexington) and Lang Recital Hall. The Masters Series will take place at 8:00 pm in The Kaye Playhouse. Daily Masterclasses and weekend special events will take place at the Lang. 

Since 1999 the Festival has attracted students from around the world who have the opportunity to attend the Festival to study with Faculty Artists, participate in masterclasses, and attend concerts and lectures given by some of the world's best-known pianists and scholars. The Festival has grown from a base of 30 participants to well over 100 each season. Participants who attend the Festival for two weeks are eligible to compete for up to $10,000 in the Dorothy MacKenzie Artist Recognition Scholarship Awards.
