The festival was suspended temporarily from 2003 to 2006, when it was re-launched under the leadership of the Polish Music Center at the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music and Paso Roblans led by Steve Cass of Cass Winery and Joel Peterson, grandson of the Paderewski Festival's founder Virginia Peterson. Polish artists take part in the festival along with American artists and winners of Paderewski's piano competitions.
