Relive some of the best moments of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, in a global watch party. Twice a week, we’ll host a Facebook premiere of a full recital or piano quintet from Cliburn Competitions past, complete with a special message from the featured artist. To launch this first week, we’ll feature our two most recent gold medalists: Vadym Kholodenko (2013) and Yekwon Sunwoo (2017).
For our youngest Cliburn friends! Take a break from at-home school studies to have some music fun, as we explore rhythm, storytelling, dance and listening games. Buddy Bray—Cliburn artistic advisor and co-author of the Cliburn in the Classroom signature in-school program—will lead kids on short (7- to 10-minute), entertaining and educational journeys, twice a week. (Programs are geared towards elementary-aged children; links to at-home supplemental activities will be provided as available.) Cliburn in the Classroom programs written by Dr. John Feierabend and Buddy Bray.

Our amateur pianists hold a special place in the Cliburn Family. Their commitment to music and music-making is extraordinary, as is their talent. The 2020 Cliburn International Amateur Piano Competition has been rescheduled to 2022, but that won’t stop us from celebrating them. Three times a week, we’ll post a performance video submitted by the 72 who were accepted as competitors or festival participants.
