The EPIC Partnership

The Elite Performing Instrument Collection (EPIC) program, also known as The EPIC Partnership, is a unique institutional program made possible by the Shigeru Kawai Endowment. Institutions that qualify will be given the opportunity to acquire an elite assortment of fine Kawai and Shigeru Kawai pianos at sponsored cost levels. The elite Shigeru Kawai grand pianos are acclaimed worldwide for their quintessential tone and performance.

Becoming a Kawai EPIC partner sends a message to the institution’s current and potential students that the institutional is serious about its music program and is making an investment that will be of great benefit to them. EPIC Partners also receive the highest level of advice and support from Kawai’s Institutional Relations Team, both before and after the selection and installation of EPIC pianos.
