As in competitions past, the three medalists will receive a comprehensive and personalized career management package, to include three years of concert bookings, artistic planning mentorship, traditional and social media training, logistics support, and tax and financial planning guidance, as well as commercial recording releases and a complete promotional package.

For the laureates of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, competing in—and winning—one of the world’s major classical music events marks only the beginning of their professional lives in music. The Competition is foremost a launch pad for establishing meaningful careers.

After three weeks of intense competition, the classical music world will have come to know these phenomenal artists through the Cliburn’s worldwide webcast, extensive international media coverage, and industry attention. The Cliburn career management program aims to take advantage of this moment to build a unique profile for each winner and to launch their career.
