ANNOUNCING JULY 18th and 19th: Preliminary Rounds Schedule of Pianists (most up to date changes)

WIPAC'S Washington International Piano Artists Competition Dates are: JULY 17-21st. See the LEFT SIDE column of this page for links to printable pdf files containing more information re attendance at the competition.

We will be starting the preliminary rounds on July 18th and 19th at GWU Phillips Hall B120; semifinal round is on Saturday, and then we move to THE CORCORAN MUSEUM (newly acquired by the GWU Corcoran School of the Arts and Designs) on JULY 21st at 1:00 PM in their beautiful concert hall auditorium, last used by WIPAC in 2005.

Here is a link to some information on parking in the area around Corcoran: Click this link for Corcoran PKG INFO

The building is just west of the White House Lawn. 500 17th Street, but use the North side entrance along what is a very short strip of New York Avenue (that is actually E Street mostly) on this day. As you may know, the street names were meant to confuse everyone trying to find the WHITE HOUSE!

See PRESS CORNER (above) for a review of our WIPAC competition in 2005 at THE CORCORAN, written by TIM PAGE, Pulitzer Prize Winning Staff Writer of the Washington Post. WIPAC makes HISTORY with its memorable events!!! We look forward to our return to Corcoran in 2019!
