NASHVILLE, Tenn. - PRDelivery -- Administrative Director Joshua Izzard of the Nashville International Chopin Piano Competition today unveiled the names of the 26 exceptional finalists set to compete for $50,000 in prizes in the upcoming competition, taking place at Vanderbilt University's Martha Rivers Ingram Center for the Performing Arts on October 14-15. These talented young pianists were carefully selected by a large screening jury of internationally renowned pianists from a formidable pool of applicants from around the world.

Competition Artistic Director Graciella Kowalczyk was quoted as saying, "The quality and quantity of applications to the 2023 Nashville International Chopin Piano Competition was astoundingly high. Our screening jury faced a daunting task of listening to, reviewing, and rating so many world-class performances that at times it seemed like arriving at the final decision would be impossible. But they did an incredible job, and we could not be more thrilled than to welcome these 26 brilliant young pianists to Nashville."
