Introducing the World Pianist Invitational Classical Music Competition -- CALL FOR ENTRIES!

We’d like to welcome you -- and introduce you -- to the inaugural World Pianist Invitational.

Destined to take its place among the world’s premier international classical music challenge events, the World Pianist Invitational is a two-part competition. 

Phase I – which officially launches this week – is an online entry activity through which aspiring competitors, aged 5-29,will submit a video recording of their classical piano performance to a blue chip panel of international judges.  From those submissions – and we are capping the entries at 2,500 – five finalists across five age groups (25 performers total) will be invited to participate in Phase II – a live concert performance at the world renowned Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Washington, D.C. 

$10,000 in scholarship prizes will be awarded to these finalist WPI Phenom Laureates.

The competition is now accepting applications, with a final competitor on-line video application deadline of Saturday, April 20, but HURRY, these applications are already coming in FAST!!!
