After the great success of the 2023 Edition, we are happy to announce the 8th edition of the "Città di Minerbio" International Piano Competition for Young Pianists, and the 8th edition of the International Festival for Young Pianists “Città di Minerbio”, which will take place from October 1-6 2024, at the "Teatro Minerva" Minerbio (BO). The 8th edition wants to propose itself in a perspective of continuity with the previous ones, both as regards the objectives of excellence and development of talent, and for the desire to involve the territory, thanks to live events in which the candidates will be the protagonists; they will give to the competition the breath of a music festival. In this edition, candidates will be able to request, upon registration, to be hosted by families in Minerbio who will make themselves available for this purpose, for the entire period of the competition. The Competition and the Festival are held annually and are reserved only for solo pianists, not older than twenty-six years of age (max. twenty-seven years old on October 1st, 2024). We are proud to announce that our competition has been accepted as a member of EMCY and of Alink-Argerich Foundation, demonstrating the artistic level achieved in previous years and confirming the reliability of our commitment to the future in this sector.
The Competition and the Festival will take place from October 1-6, 2024, at the "Teatro Minerva” - Minerbio (BO). There will be Masterclasses and concerts played by the Professors, concerts by candidates and an opening ceremony, on a date that will be decided soon.
