Nestled in the river bluffs overlooking Kansas City, MO, a musical enclave is quietly producing some of the best classical musicians in the world. Based on the Classic European Apprenticeship Model, the Park International Center for Music is transforming talented protégés in piano, violin, viola and cello into world-class performers.

Our internationally renowned instructors prepare students not only for the rarefied air of top international competition, but also in the life skills needed to thrive in their chosen profession.

No other American music program provides this intensive European protégé/master training.


RECORD FIVE winners of Prestigious International Music Competitions In Virtual Concert, Thursday, January 21

In the 2019-2020 academic year, Park University’s International Center for Music had five students win top prizes in some the most prestigious international music competitions in the world. Because of COVID-19, Park University was not able to publicly celebrate our award winners. But our loss is your gain as we’re taking our celebration to the clouds. In partnership with the 1900 Building, Park ICM presents all five of our 2020 Award Winners in recital. This virtual concert will be broadcast one time only, at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, January 21st, 2021. Learn More
