  • Sofia Sarmento, Portugal

    I participated in SIPO 2014 and I considered it a fantastic experience. I and other students coming from different parts of the globe had the opportunity of playing, watching concerts, and attending classes with some of the most acclaimed piano teachers alive. Besides this, Óbidos is a lovely and typical town in Portugal, and a beautiful place to visit and stay during summer.
