I spent much of my weekend at Hamline University's Sundin Hall listening to 18 extraordinary young pianists, invited to the Twin Cities to participate in the first-ever Minnesota International e-Piano Junior Competition. The e-Comp isn't new to the Twin Cities, but the Junior piece of it is. Pianists older than 17 are not allowed to participate.
On Sunday night, the field of 18 contestants was reduced to 12. Tonight, following a full day of competition, the field is reduced to 9.
Performances today and Wednesday are streamed live on the competition website. Just look for Live Stream under Current Competition.
