Competition Events

Contestant Community Concerts

During each competition, our talented contestants present recitals around the Cleveland community, reaching individuals at senior centers, retirement communities, hospitals, libraries, and other venues around the city.

These recitals are a much-loved tradition in the community, offering music lovers an opportunity to engage with a contestant and follow his or her progress throughout the competition. At the same time, contestants enjoy an appreciative audience and the chance to fine-tune their program before the competition begins.

Family Fun Day at CIPC

Families are invited to help celebrate the competition with an afternoon of interactive live music, fun and games, and crafts! See the competition event page for information about specific event details.

Community Masterclasses

Local piano students are invited to participate in masterclasses with some of the world-renowned jurors who come to Cleveland to participate in the Cleveland International Piano Competition and CIPC for Young Artists.
