This summer, Honens brings the world’s finest emerging pianists to Calgary for an internationally renowned piano competition and ten days of extraordinary music-making. The Honens International Piano Competition awards the largest prize of its kind—$100,000 CAD and an Artist Development Program valued at a half-million dollars.
The Competition comes to an adrenaline-charged close over two evenings of performances of chamber music and orchestra. Plan to attend both evenings! The three Finalists each perform a program with the Azahar Ensemble and a concerto with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and guest conductor Karina Canellakis. Finals Sessions are preceded by pre-concert chats at 6:30 pm hosted by Honens Artistic Director Jon Kimura Parker.
On the second of two nights of Finals, the three Finalists perform their choice of a post-Classical piano concerto with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and guest conductor Karina Canellakis. The evening builds to the announcement of the 2018 Honens Prize Laureate, presentation of awards, and a special farewell performance by 2015 Honens Prize Laureate Luca Buratto.
Semifinalists and their order of performance will be announced 28 May 2018. Finalists will be announced 3 September 2018.
