Piano Competition Finals

Piano Competition Finals

Bristol Chapel
Westminster Choir College

Hear some of the most talented pianists in the tri-state area compete for first place prizes!

Now in its 13th year, The Princeton Festival Piano Competition attracts well over a hundred young artists from the tri-state area, nationally, and even internationally. Adjudicated by distinguished conservatory faculty members and accomplished concert performers, this competition provides useful written comments for all participants, with a challenge trophy and cash prize to the winners in each category.

You’ll be impressed with the musicality of these young artists, from the youngest in the Elementary Artist category to conservatory students in the Open Class. We invite you to attend the free Preliminary Rounds and then return for the Final Round to see if your favorite takes home the prize.

Sponsored by Jacobs Music, the region’s exclusive retailer of Steinway & Sons pianos, also representing Yamaha and other fine pianos.
