The Van Cliburn Foundation
Celebrates 50 Years
2012 marks 50 years of the Van Cliburn Foundation...
showcasing extraordinary talent in classical music,
nurturing the careers of exceptional young pianists,
encouraging the making of music in daily life,
educating new generations of listeners and volunteers, and
exposing audiences worldwide to the wonder of music.
We invite you to be with us throughout the year ~ to grab hold of our mission and
to participate in our activities designed to exhibit the extent of our core programs.
It is a time of celebration as we honor the legacy of Van Cliburn and of the Foundation.
