Intercollegiate Piano Competition of the West







The Intercollegiate Piano Competition of the West was established by Dr. Adam Piotr Żukiewicz with a purpose of promoting excellent young piano students and fostering collaboration between the keyboard departments and areas in the western USA. Located within the driving distance from each other, the participating educational institutions have a unique opportunity to collaborate and promote their students by hosting recitals for the finalists of the competition, who only comprise of the students enrolled in the piano programs in the participating institutions.

The competition is supported by the keyboard faculty of the participating institutions, who serve as Coordinators of the Competition, and by the generous support of Mr. Barry Damerell, General Manager of Schmitt Music Denver, who sponsored the winner’s prize: a professional recital engagement at Schmitt Music Denver.
