“A celebration of music, and the people who have to make music no matter what.” – Boston Globe

This eighth edition of the Cliburn International Amateur Piano Competition will bring together 39 of the most devoted, highly talented non-professional pianists, age 35 and older, in the world. Representing 19 countries, these artists—who are accountants, engineers, doctors, business executives by day—will share their love for music with each other, and with all of us, over the course of a week. Include the Amateur Final Round in your Cliburn Concerts subscription this year and witness the stunning conclusion, as six finalists truly live out their dreams by performing on the Bass Hall stage with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Miguel Harth-Bedoya. Then stay as we learn who will take first prize in this meaningful monument to the beauty of music making in everyday life.
