The Florida International Piano Competition has attracted some of the world’s most talented, professional pianists to the Central Florida community. Here they are given an extraordinary opportunity to compete not only for cash prizes, but also be provided with an avenue to help advance their careers. Very few cities host competitions of this caliber and we are honored to be among them. We are also pleased to announce the appointment of our new Artistic Director, Santiago Rodriguez. Recognized as one of the finest pianists in the world combined with his vast experience judging in international competitions, Mr. Rodriguez brings exceptional expertise to the Florida International Piano Competition. Please join us in giving him a warm welcome!
