For only the second time, The Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition and Festival is bringing the best-of-the-best 13- to 17-year-old pianists from around the world to Dallas this month from May 31 to June 8. Through four rounds of competition, including a stunning Final Round with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, these elite young artists will showcase their virtuosity and touch our hearts with their sincere musicality.
