Pictures and Video being processed. More to Come!
The Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, presented by Margarita Khaitov, owner of Magic of Music in Delmar, was hosted at Artist Pianos in Latham this year. 
 
Twentyfour exceptional young pianists, ages 6-17, competed for prizes ranging from $20 gift certificates to Van Curler music to $300 cash awards. The Competition is divided into three categories: Young (ages 6-10), Apprentice (ages 11-13), and Master (ages 14-17). Each of the students performed their own selection composed by Tchaikovsky.
 
Congratulations to this year's winners and to each and every competitor for their wonderful performances.
