The 2014 competition was held June 23-28, 2014 at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
The World Piano Competition’s mission is to promote and celebrate the art of classical piano music, inspiring artists and audiences.
We believe in making a change. We believe that inviting world-class competitors to Cincinnati is not only good for the city, but good for the communities that call it “home.” We believe that there is cause and need to celebrate this art, that educating our community in its history and practice is relevant and beneficial, and that its promotion is a non-negotiable that we are proud to pursue. We believe in classical piano music, its future, and our supporting role in its flourish and eminence.
