The one-day event will highlight the final six competitors in concert with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Leonard Slatkin. The program will begin with a delayed broadcast of Friday evening’s performances, leading into a live presentation of Saturday’s performances. The broadcast begins at noon CT /11 a.m. MT on Saturday, June 10, and will run five and a half hours. It will include a live interview with Slatkin by Elliott Forrest of WQXR-FM, New York City’s classical station.

The Cliburn Competition’s national cinema debut is made possible through a partnership with Fathom Events.
