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 Park ICM Students Earn Top Awards in International Competitions in One Academic Year

In 2019-2020, Park University’s International Center for Music had five students win top prizes in some of the most prestigious international music competitions in the world. This is a success ratio not enjoyed by any other music conservatory in the country. It is also the most award winners that Park University has celebrated in a single academic year since its inception in 2003.

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. You can watch their performances in the comfort of your home and at your leisure. Help us celebrate our students’ successes. Click here for information on all our award winners and to connect to their self introductory and performance videos. Congratulations Dilshod, Igor, Kenny, Kyoshiro, and Simon!
