We congratulate the hard-working pianists and violinists that took part in yesterday’s Bach Festival, and acknowledge with respect the support system behind their preparation that made it possible: we salute the wonderful, knowledgable teachers, and the supportive family and friends that provide constant encouragement. Our great thanks to the wonderful adjudicators that listened and provided their constructive feedback: Renato Fabbro, SIPF’s own president, Ivona Kaminska, Ross Salvosa, and Alexander Tutunov.

Lastly, we wish to congratulate the many award winners from the seventh annual Bach Festival.
