SMU and the Dallas Chamber Symphony are gearing up to host young professional pianists for the third annual Dallas International Piano Competition.
Nineteen pianists from nine different countries will compete to win the chance to perform a piano concerto with the Dallas Chamber Symphony during the 2015-16 season. Runners-up will receive cash prizes.
“This year marks a new milestone for the competition as it has attracted a record number of applicants, including students and graduates from all of the top universities and conservatories in the country,” says Richard McKay, Artistic Director of the Dallas Chamber Symphony.
The four-day event will be March 11-14 in SMU’s Caruth Auditorium. The event is open to the public but day passes must be purchased. Ticket prices are $15 per day or $35 for four days.
