— About the Competition—

Since 2002, the Julia Crane International Piano Competition has provided scholarships and performance opportunities for young pianists.  In addition the competition provides students from around the world with an opportunity to participate in workshops and masterclasses that foster both professionalism and camaraderie.

 

— About the Crane School of Music —

The Crane School of Music, one of three schools of SUNY Potsdam, consists of 550 undergraduate and 30 graduate students and a faculty of 70 teachers and professional staff in a college of 4,300 students and 250 faculty.

In January, 2007, Crane became an All-Steinway School with the purchase of 141 Steinway pianos, the largest single acquisition of new Steinway pianos in Steinway & Sons’ 154-year history.  The competition therefore exclusively uses Steinway pianos.
