Some of you will remember enjoying the webcast of the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, which brings together 30 of the world's finest pianists under 30 every 4 years to Fort Worth, Texas. The Cliburn is one of the world's premier piano competitions and is the preeminent one in North America.
Every once in a while, the Van Cliburn Foundation puts on an International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs. Participants must be at least 35 years old and must not derive their primary income from piano or music.
This year's installment of the competition has begun and runs through May 29. Find the free webcast here at http://www.cliburn.org. Enjoy!
