Become a Friend of the festival

We create the Piano Biënniale together. The festival is made possible in part by the generous support from our Friends.

Looking for new friends!

It all started with the love for music and an inspired drive to familiarize a new, larger audience with the riches of piano music. Five years ago, Daria founded the Keys to Music Foundation. Gradually, the foundation’s ambition grew to provide a stage to fellow musicians as well. Soon different kinds of artists, the audience, and scientists would also play a part in interpreting and performing music. Through these collaborations, we create innovative performances – because we have more impact when we come together.

Thanks to the support from our Friends and our Key Friends, many of whom joined us at the very start, we can organize the Piano Biennial together with our partners. And for that we are very grateful!

Do you want to support the Piano Biënnale?

It all starts with a strong foundation. The Piano Biennial offers musicians and creators a stage where they can connect with the audience. By supporting the Piano Biennial, you help us build a strong platform for pianists, and you further support all directly and indirectly involved musicians. Help us build a solid foundation and become a Piano Biennial Friend for € 60 per year.

Our Friends get discounted Piano Biënnale tickets and early access to ticket sales.

Support with a onetime gift

All support, whether big or small, is welcome. We are very happy with onetime gifts, and they are a good way to help us realize our mission. You can make a donation when you purchase your concert tickets. Thanks in advance for your support!

Public Benefit Organisation (PBO/ANBI) status makes donations fiscally attractive

As a Key Friend, you donate €1.000 per year for a period of five years. You can pay this annual contribution at once or in instalments. The organization behind the Piano Biennial, the Keys to Music Foundation, is a designated cultural ANBI (Public Benefit Organization). Because of that, you qualify for tax deductions that can reduce the costs of your donation to as little as €350 per year.

The mission of the Keys to Music Foundation is to promote the power of classical and contemporary music among a large audience in new, artistic projects. The foundation acquires financial support and manages contributions. The board monitors the foundation’s activities.

Do you want to support us in another way? We are also very happy with that. We can discuss how you can help us, or how we can help one another. Please get in touch with our financial director Jill Pisters: or +31 (0)6 41 318 317.

Stay tuned!
