Classical Music is Alive and Well at the e-Piano Competition

Posted at 5:40 PM on July 9, 2008 by Melissa Ousley (6 Comments)

The first-ever e-Piano Junior Competition is in the Semi-Final Round this afternoon at Hamline University's Sundin Hall. Beginning at noon, each of the nine remaining contestants presented a 40-minute program. Lots of Lizst, Prokofiev and Chopin. Right now, a 16 year old Frank Dupree from Germany is presenting his program which includes a solo version of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue!

At the end of today, we'll find out who the judges have selected as the five finalists. Those five will compete in the Concerto Round on Friday at noon. For this phase of the competition, they play with the Minnesota Orchestra and the performance will be broadcast live on Classical MPR. The concert is free, but if you can't make it to Orchestra Hall please join us for what promises to be an exciting live broadcast.

Find out more about this year's Jr. e-Comp at the competition website. Later this evening, they'll provide the names of the five finalists.
