Tickets to The Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition:

In collaboration with PianoTexas, the Van Cliburn Competition has reserved a limited number of tickets in the Mezzanine Section our participants. Tickets are available on a first-come-first-served basis. To ensure seats are available, it is imperative that you order your tickets EARLY. If you wish to purchase any section other than Mezzanine you may do so independently of PianoTexas.

Participants for this program are advised that ordering for the Preliminary (May 22 – 28) and the Semifinals and Final Rounds (May 28 – June 7) separately will be only available after January 2009.

 

After completing the application form for PianoTexas you may proceed to purchase tickets on the Cliburn Ticket website where you will be asked to complete an order form. In order to receive preferential seating in the Mezzanine sections, remember to write “Piano Texas” in the Comment Box at the bottom of the order form.

 

Performing applicants for the Teachers & Amateur Program who are not selected as performers will be offered to come as observers, thus maintaining their purchased tickets. However, if they select not to attend they will receive the refund for their tickets.

 

Please note that in order to benefit from both the Cliburn Competition and PianoTexas, we advise that you make your application to both programs at the same time.
