Great Opportunity for young artists

Thanks Mary for so clearly delineating the benefits of this competition. Opportunities for mentoring and growth in the world of classical piano are so important for young artists. And your piece should entice talented young pianists to try to participate in the VWIPC. It’s clearly a very special event.

Olympic style!

It's about time we see more how adolescents are celebrated and nurtured. Community Rian competition...a tough cocktail ty o mix, but so thoughtfully done.
Reminds one of the NY Philharmonic playing winning compositions by teenie to teen we inners. Each very young one introunced their piece with adorable, heartfelt, child-eyed narratives of their inspiration and themes--like the one who just lived how spiders move and live, or another who imagines a new world order where adults don't have to set rules or punish kids...all act in peace.
We sure do root for and cheer them on!
