We're down to the Semi-Final Round at the International e-Piano Junior Competition. Beginning at noon, each of the nine contestants will present a 45 minute program. At the end of the day, the judges will select five who move on the the Final Concerto Round. If you've been following our coverage and find yourself wishing that you could see and hear more, you're in luck. All of today's performances are streamed live on the competition website and if you'd like to go back and check out some of the earlier rounds, they're also available. Just click here and then look to the right where it says 40 (or more) videos.
Of course, there's nothing like hearing live music. If you're in or near the Twin Cities on Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock, please consider heading to Ted Mann Concert Hall for a FREE performance of the Final Round. You'll hear the five finalists joined by members of the Minnesota Orchestra and conductor Mark Russell Smith. We won't know the exact program until those finalists are selected. More on that tomorrow.
