The Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City has been buzzing with excitement, anxiety, and adrenaline from the 2016 Gina Bachauer International Junior Piano Competition. The concert hall was ringing from the spectacular performances by the five finalists selected by the international jury last night after the completion of the two 30-minite solo rounds.
