Given the good news regarding vaccination levels and statewide opening in California, the Board of Directors of the Paderewski Festival has decided to plan for an in-person Festival this year. Please save the following dates for your visit in Paso Robles: Friday, November 5 – Sunday, November 7.

The Festival will begin with a Chamber Music Concert on Friday, November 5, which will be FREE to the public as a welcome back to the Festival. The Youth Competition Winners’ Recital will be presented at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 6. The Gala Concert, featuring world renowned pianist Kevin Kenner, is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. that same evening, preceded by a wine-tasting with Gala Sponsor Epoch Estate Wines.

A Brunch Event featuring past Competition winners held on Sunday morning, November 7 will be open to our Patrons and Friends of Paderewski ticket holders only. To learn more about becoming a Patron or Friend of Paderewski, please or call (805) 235-5409. Tickets for the general public will go on sale after Labor Day.

Please stay tuned as more details about programs, performers and venues will be shared as soon as they are confirmed. 

After a year of hearing music in virtual spaces, we are looking forward to live music returning to Paso and to interactions with our distinguished audience. We appreciate your continued support of the Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles.

Please be aware that, due to unforeseeable circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 Paderewski Festival events may be limited or cancelled if local, State or Federal restrictions are reinstated. In this unlikely event, the Board of the Paderewski Festival will do our utmost to communicate with Festival patrons and provide refunds in a timely manner.
