Of the 85 Official Bachauer Competitors in the 2018 International Artists Competition, 42 will be performing in New York City. Each will present a 30-minute concert for the Preliminary Round jury and local audiences. Because there are no requirements for repertory, competitors are able to display their full artistry and virtuosity in music of their choice. All performances are free and the public is encouraged to attend.
New York City performances take place at the:
Merkin Concert Hall
Kaufman Music Center
129 W 67th Street
New York, NY
An announcement will follow on January 26, in a live-streamed event from Steinway Hall in New York City, of the 36 quarter finalists traveling to Salt Lake City, Utah in June.
