Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Southern Illinois Piano Festival returns for a third run next month. The biennial classical music festival once again features the artistry and works of renowned pianists, master classes and clinics open to the community.

The festival runs Oct. 2, 4-5, Nov. 2 and Dec. 2 at various locations on campus. All of the concerts and master classes are free and open to the public, thanks to support from the SIU Fine Arts Activity Fee.

This year’s guest pianists are:

  • Matthew Bengtson, associate professor of piano literature at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance, where he teaches piano, fortepiano, and courses and seminars in piano repertoire, history and culture.
  • Marina Lomazov, professor of piano at the Eastman School of Music and co-founder and co-artistic director of the Southeastern Piano Festival in Columbia, South Carolina.
  • Péter Tóth, an adjunct professor in Fairleigh Dickinson’s School of the Arts.

They will join SIU piano faculty Junghwa Lee and Yuko Kato for the festival
