Dunkley Music Announces 2018 Steinway Piano Competition

Dunkley Music announces a new piano competition for young pianists. In 2018, Steinway & Sons, makers of the finest pianos in the world, will launch a prestigious competition offering young artists the opportunity to compete for up to $1,000 in prize money and official recognition from an iconic world-class piano brand.

 The new competition, open to artists aged 18 and under, will take place at Steinway-authorized locations throughout the United States and Canada, and Dunkley Music is pleased to have been identified as a regional host venue. Performances—consisting of at least two contrasting pieces of contrasting style and period—will be judged by professional piano adjudicators, and all participants will receive judges’ comments and commemorative Steinway certificates of achievement. First-, second-, and third-place winners will also receive Steinway lyre medals.

 Audition slots are limited and will fill quickly; participants are urged to register early. Registration closes April 1, 2018. Full contest information, including registration information, is available at www.steinway.com/competition
