2018 Steinway Competition Finalists

Dear Steinway Competition Participants:

We were amazed at every one of our applicants for the 2018 Steinway & Sons Competition. All the students came to play and share their music, and all of them should consider themselves winners. The hard work and dedication put forth by the teachers and parents to prepare the students for this competition was also immediately apparent with every Application.
