The Dallas Chamber Symphony’s fifth annual Dallas International Piano Competition from March 15-18 is now underway, in partnership with Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts. Eighteen young pianists are participating in the three competition rounds at Caruth Auditorium in the Owen Arts Center at SMU. The event also includes master classes for the pianists taught by competition jurors and guest faculty Boris Slutsky of the Peabody Institute and Dr. Carol Leone of SMU. The live competition rounds are being adjudicated by Angela Cheng of Oberlin College Conservatory, Enrico Elisi of University of Toronto, and Ning An of California State University-Fullerton. The first prize winner will perform a piano concerto with Dallas Chamber Symphony during the 2017-18 season at City Performance Hall in Dallas, and cash prizes also will be awarded. Finals are scheduled for March 18 at 7pm, followed by an award ceremony.
