CIPC Announces 2017 Concert Series
The Cleveland International Piano Competition (CIPC) will present a full year of concerts in 2017, featuring extraordinary musicians from around the world. In keeping with CIPC’s ongoing activities to “celebrate the art of piano,” the concerts present a diverse array of piano music, including solo recitals, piano duo, chamber music, and more. In addition, each concert will include a distinctive social component, which in some cases is an optional event, and, in others, is part of the concert experience.
