About the Competition
Through the use of a Yamaha Disklavier, a premier Internet-connected piano, the performances taking place live in the Davis Concert Hall will be shared with international audiences, as other connected Disklaviers around the globe play synchronously with the performer, displaying the precise keystrokes and pedal technique of each musician in real time. A webcast will accompany the performance as well, allowing international audiences to follow this far north competition from their own homes, schools and communities.
The winners of this competition will be awarded more than $65,000 in prize money and performances, including performances in Chicago and New York City.
History of the e-Competition
Through the shared vision and effort of Eduard Zilberkant, president’s professor of music at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and music director and conductor of the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra, this competition will be coming to Alaska for the second time in summer 2018.
