The International Institute of Piano Artistry seeks to enhance the artistic depth, technical skill, and overall artistic quality of performing and teaching. The Institute has many goals such as establishing an artist diploma of the highest attainment, founding international competitions that give students unique opportunities to display their gifts in front of a discerning and truly international audience and jury, and to promote the highest ideals of art music throughout the world.
Chicago International Music Competition is a platform for students to shine! Students will have the opportunity to compete for prizes and perform at prestigious, world-renowned venues. The events are more than a competition but special cultural events that serve to broaden students’ cultural awareness and heighten their own expectations. The competition will be adorned with a knowledgeable, world-class jury. Students will also have the opportunity to study in an intensive summer program with star faculty from all over the world. This program features lessons, master classes, and the camaraderie of knowing some of the finest pianists in the world.
