The Hilton Head International Piano Competition is looking for a few more homes to host a competitor this March. All the host needs is an extra bedroom and bath, a baby grand piano (or larger) and the wish to welcome a pianist into your home.

Being a host family for the Hilton Head International Piano Competition is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You will get to hear world-class piano music played in your home for over a week.Your baby grand piano will never sound better!

You will also get to experience the life of a young professional on the verge of meeting their career dreams. Many of our competitors are from outside the U.S., so hosting may also provide a wonderful cross-cultural experience.

Yes, it involves some work on your part. You must provide a welcoming home, a baby grand piano, and feed, transport and support the competitor for the duration of the competition.

You will meet other host families in our community who repeatedly return to have this wonderful experience. Host families often keep in touch with their competitors for years – attend their weddings, visit them in their home countries and meet their families.

The 2022 HHIPC will happen in March.  Competitors will arrive on March 3 or 4 and depart March 15. If you are interested, or need more information please call the HHIPC office at 843-842-5880.
