DATES OF COMPETITION: Thursday AUGUST 3, through Sunday, AUGUST 6, 2017
Welcome Reception (OPEN TO competitors, guests, donors, and volunteers WITH RSVP) is Wednesday August 2nd . In 2016 we were able to shift the Welcome Reception to Thursday and first day of Preliminary Rounds to Friday, because we were able to schedule all competitors in one day. This could happen, so it is important to note. Also, please remember, CHROME BROWSER users should reload this page each time you visit it, manually, to make sure you are looking at the latest updated page information!

  • AWARDS CEREMONY AND CELEBRATORY DINNER: Location TBA. Dinner event is catered and antendees must be paid for in advance, so sign up as early as possible. If you signup as competitor, OK to add $75 to your application fee of $140 for yourself. $75 for each additional person is a rate for additional "competitor's" guests only rate (prepaid prior to event). $125 is charged all other guests attending the finals and dinner on the same day. $25 charge for attendees at competition round if dinner is excluded. Competitors are allowed guests and family at the finals, but we must charge $75 for the dinner to help cover costs. Most likely menu is salad, meat/vegetarian options and desert; vegetarian available on request. We encourage competitors to be there. If you are a competitor and receive an award and are not there, you may never receive it, and it is not uncommon for pianists who did not advance to receive one of several discretionary awards offered by the panel of jurors.
