“Perhaps there are too many piano competitions, but there are too few like Honens.”Macleans

I do not exaggerate when I say that if there were hypothetically any one competition I could have chosen to win, it would be Honens. I could hardly imagine a better way to begin one’s career as a pianist than the Artist Development program!”—Nicolas Namoradze, 2018 Honens Prize Laureate
