2022 Annual Children in the Arts Piano Competition
Competition 9 am – 5 pm
Reception 7 – 9:30 pm
Pompano Beach Cultural Center
The City of Pompano Beach Children in the Arts Committee, the City of Pompano Beach and the Broward Teachers Music Association present the 2022 annual Children in the Arts Piano Competition on Saturday, March 5, 2022.
The Competition is open to piano teachers who live in Broward County, Florida, teach students who live in Broward County or are members of the Broward County Music Teachers Association (BCMTA).
For more than 25 years, 80 -150 young pianists from Broward County have participated in the Children in the Arts Piano Competition playing before a board of judges. Their pieces are timed and must be memorized.
Students complete in categories ranging from beginner to advanced. After each student’s performance, the board of judges completes critiques of their performances. At the completion of the competition, 21 winners are announced, but these students do not know how they ranked in their categories.
There is an evening performance of the 21 winners at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center where the students are informed of their final rankings. The Steinway Young Virtuoso Scholarship Award is presented and acknowledges the special musical talent, interpretation and personality of the pianist. The winner is chosen by select members of the audience.
The event is sponsored by the City of Pompano Beach, the Steinway Piano Gallery and local businesses.
Teachers who meet the eligibility requirements can download these documents and nominate their students. Deadline for entry is February 1, 2022.
The Competition is open to piano teachers who live in Broward County, Florida, teach students who live in Broward County or are members of the Broward County Music Teachers Association (BCMTA).
