THE PIANO SIX STORY

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to bring world-class pianists to thousands of Canadians in remote communities, to inspire future generations of musicians and fans.

LOYALTY

Develop future Canadian audiences for traditional and contemporary classical music.

EXPERTISE

Provide audiences a chance to interact with world class musicians directly.

ECONOMIES OF SCALE

Encourage Canadians of all ages and backgrounds to join performance groups or take music lessons.

INNOVATION

Enhance Canadian artistic life by revitalizing the engagement of Canadians with classical music.

“It takes a whole community, not just a school to educate our children well, and you and your group have provided a rich experience for them.” Wainwright High School, AB

“Your program can have no rival in its far-reaching effect on audiences, students and teachers throughout Canada. It must work like ripples in a pond, reaching more and wider circles as it progresses.” Triad Concert Society, Port Moody, BC

“To see these great artists and great human beings giving unselfishly of themselves in the ‘cause’ of music and education is an inspiration to students, teachers and audiences alike. Bravo!” John Hansen, Acadia University, NS

'The children were mesmerized'
School District # 81, Fort Frances, ON
