The American Prize is pleased to announce the semi-finalists in its 2011 piano competitions, in both the concerto performance and solo divisions. Finalists will be chosen from this list, from which the winners of The American Prize in Piano Performance will be chosen. In addition to the blog announcement, semi-finalists and their media contacts will be emailed this information shortly.
