Last year we had pianists from MD, DC, VA, PA, DE, FL, OH, GA, MA, NY, NJ, CT, CA , SC, new states Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois and overseas China which divided into 6 groups. Each one performed western pieces and one Chinese required piece. The competition is to promote the music from the East and the West. The ethnic reference is an indication of the international and inclusive flavor of the unique International Young Artist Piano Competition.
