About The Gilmore

In 1989, trustees of the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation of Kalamazoo, Michigan, announced plans to honor the memory of Irving S. Gilmore, a local businessman and philanthropist, by creating some of the most unique and significant awards for pianists anywhere in the world and a biennial piano festival to celebrate keyboard music.

Mission of The Gilmore

  • Identifying exceptional keyboard artists through a noncompetitive process and then providing significant support to enhance their careers

  • Presenting world-class music festivals featuring the finest international keyboard artists

  • Providing an outstanding keyboard educational program

  • Supporting the creation of keyboard music
