2017 VAN CLIBURN INTERNATIONAL PIANO COMPETITION WINNERS

Since its inception in 1962, the Cliburn has remained committed not only to identifying young pianists who represent the highest in artistic achievement, but also to nurturing these artists and launching their careers. To this end, the Cliburn arranges for hundreds of recital, festival, and orchestra concert engagements across the United States for the winners in the three years following the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Medalists are available for solo, chamber, and orchestra concerts, as well as for master classes, outreach activities, and other education programs. The Cliburn provides full artist services, including publicity, programs, visas, and logistics support.

The Cliburn works in partnership with Keynote Artist Management to develop a comprehensive career mentorship program for 2017 Gold Medalist Yekwon Sunwoo. Keynote also books and services engagements across Europe and Asia for Mr. Sunwoo.
