Applications for 2014 Piano Competition now open!
Our Piano Competition is entering its 7th year and attracts a high level of local, regional, and even a few international young artists. Competitors perform a piece selected from the repertoire list for their age group (except for the Open Class) or the Four-Hand category, and the adjudicators' comments on their performance are sent to their teacher following the competition. The preliminary rounds are attended by the public, free of charge, and the final round is a ticketed event. Please note these important dates–
- Deadline for submitting the online application form – 11:59pm on Monday, May 5, 2014
- Deadline for Open Class participants to submit the name of their piece – Saturday, May 17, 2014
- Preliminary Rounds – Saturday, June 7, 2014 and Sunday, June 8, 2014, approximately 9am-5pm
- Final Round – Sunday, June 15, 2014 at 3pm
Please note the increased cash prizes for the Senior Artists (ages 16-18) and Open Class (under 25) categories this year, thanks to Jacobs Music! Also, the Teacher Endorsement requirement has been removed in order to simplify the registration process.
