Your Fort Worth Public Library is proudly hosting nine concerts from 2022 Cliburn Competitors.
Join us May 27 - 31 for complimentary concerts featuring some of the most gifted pianists from around the world. Librarians will host question and answer sessions with the musicians following their concerts. Join us to learn more about their personal journeys as pianists and performers, their cultural influences and more. Help us show our Fort Worth hospitality as we welcome these international competitors to our City before the competition begins.
Competitor Concert Series
First held in 1962, the quadrennial Van Cliburn International Piano Competition quickly established itself as an event that inspires and engages the local community, while gracing the international stage. The Cliburn Competition is one of the few musical events in the world to arrange for competitors to stay with host families, often resulting in close, long-term relationships: this has resulted in southern hospitality becoming a singular trademark of the Cliburn Competition.
