The Gina Bachauer International Artists Piano Competition returns on June 11th for two weeks of highly artistic performances at Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center by 39 pianists from 14 countries competing for more than $80,000 in prizes. The unique format allows each competitor, aged 19-32, to perform in two rounds in the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center before 12 Semi-Finalists are selected. Since there are no repertoire requirements, the pianists are free to display their artistry and virtuosity through music of their own choice. The Final Round will feature the three finalists performing concertos with the Utah Symphony in Abravanel Hall on June 25th at 7pm. The complete schedule is:
