youth piano competitions
« on: December 04, 2013, 03:16:41 PM »
Dear all, I have a couple of questions regarding various regional (Massachusetts) and national youth piano competitions.  For the ones listed below, and for the comparable age group, is one more “prestigious” than others (in terms of quality of participants, the prestige of winning, etc.).  Thank you.

1.   The Massachusetts Music Teachers Association Bay State Contest
2.   The Massachusetts Music Teachers Association Judged Festival
3.   New England Piano Teachers Association annual scholarship competitions (Alice Hamlet Senior Scholarship Competition, Ruth Davidson Competition)
4.   "Young Promise" International Festival and Competition
5.   The Steinway Society of Massachusetts Competition
6.   American Fine Arts Festival
7.   Kenneth A. Darrell Memorial Piano Competition
8.   Annual International Young Artist Piano Competition
9.   International Bach Tureck Piano Competition
