We believe in making a change.

We believe in classical piano music, its future, and our supporting role in its flourish and eminence.

About

The Cincinnati World Piano Competition, a classical piano competition featuring top performers from across the globe since 1956, has recently undergone an expansion with two exciting new collaborations and instituting a variety of changes aimed at enhancing the quality of the event and making Cincinnati a truly world-class destination for classical piano performance.

Primary among the changes at the re-imagined competition, already a highly respected event, are partnerships with two of the city’s cultural cornerstones – the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO). Beginning with the July 2013 competition, finalists in the Artist Division have had the distinct honor of performing with the world-renowned CSO, made up of some of the world’s finest musicians and an ensemble that regularly collaborates with classical music’s premier performing artists. The performances featuring the finalists are led by CSO Associate Conductor Robert Treviño. The event relocated to Corbett Auditorium at CCM, one of the nation’s top performing and media arts conservatories, where the acclaimed faculty have overseen upgrades to the competition’s jury system.
