Series of piano competitions comes to Arizona State University

We’ll take you to the Bösendorfer and Yamaha USASU International Piano Competition, which took place recently at Arizona State University. The competition is a collaboration between the ASU School of Music, The Phoenix Symphony and the Arizona Young Artist Committee.

The competition was launched by a faculty member in the ASU School of Music, and it has grown to become one of the premiere piano competitions in the world. This year, a total of 280 young pianists from 35 countries applied to the competition, but only 43 were selected to perform in the semifinal and final rounds.
