Being unique among piano competitions from all around the world, the Seattle International Piano Festival and Competition encourages pianists of all ages to seek his or her personal niche and voice, with the freedom to select musical repertoire without specific requirements. The 2017 Seattle International Piano Competition will take place September 29th through October 2nd, featuring incredible aspiring pianists of all ages and skill levels from all parts of the globe.. The 7th bi-annual Seattle International Piano Festival & Competition is being held on the stage of Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall located at 200 University Street, Seattle, Washington.
Aside from the solo piano competition, the festival will include guest recitals, master classes and lectures presented by world-class performers. The Seattle International Piano Festival provides musical opportunities for aspiring pianists, music lovers, and professional musicians. Youth, piano students of universities and conservatories, professional pianists and amateur pianists – all are invited to compete in the annual piano competition to share their original artistry. The deadline for entry is July 7th, 2017.
The more approachable structure of the festival’s bi-annual piano competition also makes it possible for a pianist of any financial status to apply and participate. Most piano competitions require the pianist to travel great distances and live out of a hotel at great personal expense and risk, not knowing whether one will even make it to the final round. A user-friendly piano competition such as this provides the pianist a means to participate without such great cost, knowing that the chances for being awarded a prize are high if one passes the preliminary round.
