The Cliburn

Cliburn 180°

Cliburn 180 at Firestone DistilleryCliburn 180° is a social group for arts-minded professionals that focuses on classical music for our generation. Established in 2009 for people in their 20s and 30s, Cliburn 180° offers fun social events and opportunities to stay engaged with the arts community in Fort Worth.

As part of their mission, the Cliburn 180ºs take on a fundraising role every four years, during the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, in order to provide cash prizes for competitors not advancing to the Semifinal Round. In 2017, that means $1,000 for each of the non-advancing Preliminary competitors (10) and $2,500 for the non-advancing Quarterfinalists (8), for a total of $30,000. This is a meaningful gift, because it means that none of the 30 extraordinary competitors–chosen from a pool of 290 applicants from 43 countries–leaves Fort Worth empty-handed.
