Letter from Baruch Meir

The Bösendorfer and Yamaha USASU International Piano Competitions are dedicated to the discovery and encouragement of young artists who possess their personal voice of interpretation in harmony with the legacy of great artists of the past and the European sound culture of these exquisite pianos. Hosted at the beautiful Arizona State University campus in the Grand Canyon State, the competitions are committed to promoting outstanding artists and providing them with the solo and orchestral performance opportunities they deserve. We welcome all aspiring pianists to gather here and present their artistry to our audience and distinguished panel of judges in a non-biased competition environment of utmost integrity. I invite you to join us! Best of luck.
