WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE 2018 Gilmore Keyboard Festival. Our patrons often tell us how grateful they are that our ticket prices are affordable. We are able to keep them low only because of the annual support of sponsors, foundations, and individuals like you. In fact, ticket revenue covers just 15% of the cost of presenting Gilmore performances.
