“The Honens International Piano Competition, based in Canada, prides itself on awarding accomplished pianists who are complete musicians. This may seem a lofty claim, but the Honens has a long list of thoughtful awardees to back it up.”—The New York Times
The program is one of the most comprehensive artistic and career development programs in the world. It includes worldwide representation; debut recitals in career-building markets which may include Berlin, London, New York, Toronto; residencies and special projects; coaching and mentorship opportunities; and the production, release, and worldwide distribution of professional recordings.
The Artist Development Program is underwritten by donations from Honens Laureate Circle Membership from across Canada, and supported by RBC Emerging Artists Project and the Azrieli Foundation.
