Gina Jeckering, Allyn Davies, and Catherine Good Brulport, the co-chairs of Encore!

Some 270 guests enjoyed a great dinner and fantastic performances by Nikita Mndoyants, Stanislav Khristenko, Dinara Klinton, and Leonardo Colafelice at the Encore! gala to benefit the Cleveland International Piano Competition on Saturday, August 5. Net proceeds of $60,000 were raised for the organization.

CIPC extends its deepest thanks to the artists whose performances made the evening so memorable, all of the guests who attended, the event chairs and committee who worked tirelessly to make sure the event was a special success, and, as always, the sponsors who give so generously in support of the organization.
