25 young pianists from around the world descended on Miami this past week to compete, hoping to take the first prize which includes $100,000, a concert tour, a Steinway label recording, and automatic admission to the XVIII International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in October 2020 (including travel expenses to attend).

The National Chopin Piano Competition of the United States is designed to offer performance opportunities and financial support to young American pianists, and to enable the Prize Winners to take part in the 18th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. Initiated in 1975, and held in Miami every five years, the National Competition rules reflect closely the regulations and requirements of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Poland.
