The Gilmore International Keyboard Festival and Awards are the legacy of Irving S. Gilmore, a Kalamazoo businessman and philanthropist, whose devotion to keyboard music and its musicians inspired the creation in 1989 of the biennial Irving S Gilmore International Keyboard Festival and the Gilmore Artist and Gilmore Young Artist Awards.

The Gilmore Artist Award is presented to an international pianist of any age and nationality who is deemed worthy of a global career. The award recognizes extraordinary artistry with some of the most generous financial support offered in the musical arts. The $300,000 award is made every four years to an exceptional pianist.
