Since 2002, The Stecher and Horowitz Foundation has presented The New York International Piano Competition in New York City, a biennial event open to pianists of all nationalities ages 16-22. The NYIPC includes educational seminars, master classes, coaching, ensemble playing, and performances. A first in the world of competitions and a unique feature of the NYIPC, no participant is eliminated during the competition’s four rounds. The Foundation also presents a cash award to each of the contestants not receiving a major prize. The competition provides an opportunity for contestants to perform, network, exchange ideas, and cultivate a support system, carrying them through their professional years.

Former NYIPC Prize Winners have been selected to perform with the Chamber Music Society Two of Lincoln Center; received the Avery Fisher Career Grant; the Gilmore Young Artist Award; Harvard University’s Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts; Young Concert Artists International Auditions Winners; Concert Artists Guild Competition Winner; and the 17th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition, Third Prize, and maintain active careers as performers, collaborative pianists, composers, and pedagogues.
