Rocky Mountain Amateur Piano Competition

When: Aug. 10-14 2011

If you enjoyed A Surprise in Texas, the acclaimed 2010 documentary about the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, now's your chance to catch our homegrown version. The Rocky Mountain Amateur Piano Competition — which begins today at 9 a.m. and continues through Sunday evening at Packard Hall (5 W. Cache la Poudre Street) — will put to rest any misconceptions that professional musicians are the only ones deserving of attention and admiration. Former Gazette arts critic Mark Arnest will be among the 28 participants, as will a couple from Japan who will be flying in and competing against each other. In addition to four rounds of competition, there'll be seminars and recitals from internationally known pianists. Visit apiano.org/en for schedule and information. — Bill Forman
