Nina Simone Piano Competition Concerto Finals
Created to give a platform to talented young African American pianists, the previous rounds of the Competition took place this summer in Cincinnati on the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music campus. The Competition aims to get more African American artists on concert stages, to commission new works, and to add more African American pianistic voices to the classical canon. Join the competition’s three finalists as they come together with Louis Langrée and the CSO to compete for the grand prize on Music Hall’s stage.
