The Chicago International Music Competition will be held July 25 - August 1, 2020 in Chicago, USA. The competition is sponsored by the International Institute of Piano Artistry, and co-organized by Wheaton College. The International Institute of Piano Artistry, a branch of the non-profit organization "Reach Out Kansas, Inc.", or "ROK". Founded in 2009, the agency has successfully cooperated with many U.S. artists and performance agencies. These collaborations bring outstanding artists and their extraordinary talents to major venues and offer students unique learning opportunities and experiences.

ROK and the International Institute of Piano Artistry are collaborating to host the Chicago International Music Competition, which aims to find and cultivate a new generation of music talents in the world and to promote the development of classical music and cultural exchange.

Each year, we invite many young musicians from all over the world to gather in Chicago which we hope will be a platform to launch their own successful careers!
