Prodigies Return!

Young Artists

Right on cue for spring, the brightest young talent from music schools and conservatories worldwide will soon arrive in Cleveland to compete in the 2018 Cleveland International Piano Competition for Young Artists.  This 11-day event made its debut as an international counterpart to CIPC in 2015, with the sensational young pianists demonstrating skill, poise and a joy in performing that quickly captured the hearts and minds of all in attendance.

The young artists will compete for prizes and engagements in two age groups: Juniors (age 12 to 14) and Seniors (age 15 to 17).  The first three rounds will be held in Mixon Hall at the Cleveland Institute of Music.  An international jury of renowned pianists will vote to advance a diminishing number of contestants until three finalists in each age group remain.  The finalists will then perform with the Canton Symphony Orchestra in the Maltz Performing Arts Center at Case Western Reserve University to determine the winners. Gerhardt Zimmermann will conduct.  The announcement of the winners at an award ceremony, followed by encore performances by the winners and a celebratory party, will conclude the event on a festive note at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
