Hilton Head International Piano Competition 2017

Friday, February 3rd, 2017 at 11:36am Engel & Völkers Hilton Head Island - Bluffton and Beaufort

We are proud to sponsor one of the world’s leading piano competitions happily hosted by our local community, the Hilton Head International Piano Competition 2017. This year, young pianists ages 13 to 17 will be traveling from all over the world to participate in the 22nd annual competition. The competition rounds will be held March 6th through March 11th starting at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, moving to the All Saints Episcopal Church, and ending at the First Presbyterian Church where participants will play for one of the many grand prizes offered to top ranking artists. The first-place prize being a $10,000 cash prize and the chance to perform with the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra along with other engagements. The competition will be judged by eight commended pianists from various nations that are welcomed into islander homes for dinners and grand piano practices throughout the competition. The twenty competitors can practice and compete thanks to the array of host families from the community providing transportation, meals, and lodging with grand piano access. To give back to the community, the competitors serve as student ambassadors to local schools. They give special performances of their musical talents and explain what life is like in their home country. Students from local schools are then invited to watch their ambassadors compete and can also sign up for piano classes put on by both the ambassadors and judges.
