The final round of the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition – highlighting the six final pianists in concerto performances with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Maestro Leonard Slatkin – will be broadcast in cinemas around the United States.

The Cliburn announced that the performances will be broadcast to movie theaters nationwide on Saturday, June 10, at noon Central Time. Friday evening performances will be presented in delayed broadcast, leading into Saturday’s performances presented live through a partnership with Fathom Events.

Tickets for “2017 Cliburn Competition LIVE in Cinemas” go on sale Thursday, Feb. 23, and can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. The Cliburn said the broadcast will be available in more than 300 movie theaters.

The 2017 contestants were selected by a screening jury that traveled the world to hear 146 pianists perform before live audiences. Only 30 will be invited to compete in Fort Worth. Seventeen days of competition culminate in the concerto performances by the finalists.

“Van Cliburn’s vision was to share excellent classical music with people around the world,” Jacques Marquis, Cliburn president and CEO, said in a news release.

The quadrennial Van Cliburn International Piano Competition was established in 1962. Cliburn, the event’s namesake, died Feb. 27, 2013, at the age 78. He was just 23 in 1958 when – at the height of the Cold War – he won the gold medal at the first Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition behind the Iron Curtain in Moscow.
