Just a few comments about this Amateur Competition, which differs from the USA Cliburn and regional USA events:

1 There are TWO divisions of entry -- one for "degreed" amateurs and one for those with no degree in piano performance.

2 There were many special certificates for those who provided special musical experiences -- the most heartfelt performance of a Russian piece; the best Scarlatti, etc.

Ideas like that I think could enhance the events here in the US.

Congrats to Wen Ho for here 2nd place finish in the "degreed" category -- at 15000 rubles, a nice chunk of change (Roughly $500 in American dollars)!

I understand it is very well run. Looks like they also have wonderful pianos to perform on. They also tie several people for places so more get recognition. Can't wait to talk to Wen Yee when she returns in a couple of weeks...I think it was a WONDERFUL experience.
