The passion and commitment of our dozens of volunteers at the Nashville International Chopin Piano Competition are the lifeblood of the organization. They make it possible for us to have an event of this scale and quality.

They are the backbone of the daily operations of the Competition, providing staffing, box office, program selling, competitor, jury, and front-of-house help.

Through this extended network of volunteers and their families and friends, the ripples of the Competition have spread throughout the city and become embedded as acts of service in the lives of many in a personal way.

Please join us in expressing your gratitude to this extraordinary group of music lovers and selfless givers of their time and resources led by Volunteer Directors Michael Richey and Leah Taylor:
