The Big Reveal
Reserve October 8-9 for the reveal of the finalists of the 2022 Seattle International Piano Competition & Festival. Now a free online event, return to the festival page starting October 8 to cast your vote for the audience favorite award among the finalists in each of the fully competitive categories: Youth Artists, Ages 10 to 13, and 14 to 18, Collegiate, and Professional Artists. Winners of the semi-competitive categories, namely Outstanding Amateurs, and Youth, Ages 9 and Under will also be revealed.
The complete profiles and exclusive performances among the esteemed body of international finalists will be posted along with an online poll to award the audience favorite prize in each category. After the reveal, a board of internationally recognized jurors will review the footage in a blind format, sanitized of identity, gender, and nationality. Like a live performance, the sequestered jury will be unable to pause, rewind, or review the footage, hearing the performance in its entirety. After scoring by secret ballot, the medalists will be revealed to the public. Over $18,000 USD in total awards and other non-cash prizes will be distributed among the winners.
Preliminary Listening Committee: Peter Mack (USA), Nicole Narboni (USA), Alina Rosevear (Poland/USA), Alexander Tutunov (Belarus/USA)
Final Round Jury: Brigitte Garzia-Capdeville (France/USA), Logan Skelton (USA), Alexander Tutunov (Belarus/USA), Francis Yang (Canada/USA)
