Cliburn announces international junior competition

Posted: Jan 28, 2014 12:15 PM CST Updated: Jan 28, 2014 12:16 PM CST

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The organization that conducts the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition has announced its launching a contest for talented teenagers.

The Cliburn says the first Cliburn International Junior Competition and Festival will be held in June 2015. Thirteen- to 17-year-olds will compete in Fort Worth.

Jacques Marquis, Cliburn practitioner and CEO, says the teen competition will allow his organization to "establish relationships with the top international talent at an earlier age." Twenty-four competitors will be chosen and the winner will receive a $10,000 award.

The original competition and its junior version are named for the famed pianist who won the first International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Cliburn gained worldwide fame and rock-star status with his 1958 victory.

Cliburn died in February at age 78 at his Fort Worth home.
