Fri 7/20 @ 7:30PM
Thirty-one young pianists from seven different countries around the world gather here in northeast Ohio over the next week to take the stage for the ninth annual Thomas and Evon Cooper International Competition. These 14-18 year old pianists will compete to advance through the four rounds at Oberlin Conservatory to the concerto finals with the Cleveland Orchestra on Fri 7/20 at Severance Hall.
All rounds at Oberlin Conservatory are free and open to the public. Tickets for the concerto finals at Severance Hall start at $13, and students under 18 get in free with a paying adult. The first prize winner is awarded $20,000 and a full-tuition scholarship to attend Oberlin Conservatory.
