Enlight Prize $10,000 in 2020
Art of the Piano is free for those who are accepted. Additionally, an Enlight Prize is offered each year to the pianist who most embodies the spirit of the festival in terms of the beauty and brilliance of their playing, as well as their generosity of spirit. A runner-up is also selected.
All selected participants for the 2020 festival will be considered for this prize, which also includes a recital with the popular Salon 21 Series in Cincinnati. The “jury” for the prize includes community members and others who listen to and observe the Young Artists throughout the festival.
In celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday – and our 10th anniversary – our Enlight Prize has been raised to $10,000. We’re thrilled to be able to do this, and to provide a talented Young Artist with some of the necessary funding to pursue a career and share their talents.
2019 Enlight Prize Winner – Daria Tudor
