    Piano Festival Expenses

    The cost to participate in the Piano Festival is $1,250, which includes tuition, double room in a college residence hall, and meals ($1,300 for a single room).

    We require that students 13 years and younger be accompanied by a parent or guardian while in the residence hall. Adult Amatuers and Families may instead choose to stay in in an area hotel or bed and breakfast. There is a block of rooms being held at the Hotel at Oberlin. If you’d like to inquire about booking a room, be sure to mention you are interested in booking a room under the Piano Festival group block (you pay the Hotel directly).

    Commuter fee/Program fee only: $725, commuter fee including lunches and dinners at the dining hall: $825.

    You may make an electronic payment  with a credit card, or if you prefer to send a check, make it payable to Oberlin College and mail to address noted above.
