Young Pianist’s Beethoven Competition

31st Annual Celia Mendez Young Pianist’s Beethoven Competition

Sunday, May 7, 2017. Concert Hall, San José State University

The Young Pianist's Beethoven competition was founded in 1987 by Celia Méndez, a San José private piano teacher, with the purpose of being an artistic learning experience, a pedagogical tool for California High School students in the process of understanding the interpretation of Beethoven's piano sonatas. Consistent with this purpose, the "prize" of the competition is participation in a master class given to the three finalists by an internationally renowned artist.
