2019 Classical Viennese Festival
The Seattle International Piano Festival (SIPF) is proud to present the Classical Viennese Festival for the sixth time for pianists and violinists. This competitive event was created to showcase classical and pre-classical sonata forms. Important for clarity and formal understanding, the sonata and related classical forms are often neglected or underrepresented in competitive events, and to provide performers with constructive feedback from performing and teaching masters. Participants will receive educational evaluations by performing for adjudicators, and a chance to certificates and medals during this competitive event.
This festival sets forth a number of age groups, as well as several narrowly defined performance categories so that they may be fairly judged, and generously decorated.
The 2019 Classical Viennese Festival takes place Sunday, March 10 at Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart. Those familiar with previous years should note a number of changes, including:
- Concerto Division: The concerto division (for pianists) has been discontinued for the 2019
- Notification: participants may now seek their time slots by Tuesday, February 26 on the itinerary page. No email notification will be delivered due to the unreliability of e-mail.
