CLIBURN INTERNATIONAL JUNIOR PIANO COMPETITION & FESTIVAL

for pianists age 13 to 17
June 2023  •  DALLAS, TEXAS

Details for the Junior Competition to be announced as venue and other confirmations are made.

The Junior Competition and Festival was established in 2015 as another means for the Cliburn to use its standing and expertise to encourage tomorrow’s great artists, to provide a valuable forum for them to express themselves, and to give them an entrance to the next step of their journeys. Key ingredients were top international jurors, the media and webcast, Final Round performances with orchestra, and the festival atmosphere, which included performance experience and artistic workshops—all put into place to make the program significantly useful for students with aspirations of being professional musicians.

The Second Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition and Festival was held in Dallas, Texas, May 31–June 8, 2019 and drew 230 applications from 32 countries. Over 20 journalists, including several from Europe, covered the event in person, writing over 120 stories about the Competition and the 23 pianists who participated. Live and on demand webcast views have topped 500,000 for over 3.8 million minutes watched by viewers in 120 countries.
