The 88 Key Society was introduced as a new gifting opportunity during the 2013 Hilton Head International Piano Competition.  It is limited to a maximum of 88 members, each of them “owning” one or more keys of the piano.  

You may become a member of this exclusive society of supporters by purchasing one (or more) of the available 88 keys with a donation of $500 per key. Pick your individual notes and own your own keys.   – Members are acknowledged in both the HHIPC and the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra program books and on both websites

– Society members’ names are also on display at all HHSO post-concert receptions and throughout the Competition week

– Society members will have preferred seating for tickets purchased for all Rounds of the International Piano Competition

– During the 2017 competition, Society members will be invited to attend a private “Coffee and Conversation with the Judges” where they will hear a panel discussion by the judges about how they adjudicate competitions.

Members may renew their membership in the 88 Key Society annually with a gift of  $500 for each of their keys. If a member decides to relinquish membership, keys will become available to other supporters.

Many thanks to the 2016 competition 88 Key Society Members:
