Borderland Chopin International Competition 2024

May 22-25, 2024

University of Texas at El Paso, El Paso, Texas

Sponsored by the Bonnie Brooks Family Foundation

The deadline for applications is February 15, 2024.

The Borderland Chopin International Competition (triennial) was created to promote the music of beloved Polish composer Frédéric Chopin, as well as other composers from unrepresented groups, in the Borderland region (West Texas, Southern New Mexico, and Chihuahua, Mexico). In addition to bring artists of international caliber to the University of Texas at El Paso, we wish to engage the community through concerts, masterclasses, outreach, and musical instrument donations.

“Borderland” refers to three border cities, encompassing two countries and three states: El Paso in Texas and Las Cruces in New Mexico, USA, and Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua, Mexico. This is a rich cultural area known for its artisans and culinary wonders, mountains, and Chihuahuan Desert beauty. Our host, the University of Texas at El Paso, boasts a beautiful, unique campus in Bhutanese architecture.

The Borderland Chopin International Competition 2024 is open to pianists of all nationalities between the ages of 18 and 35. Eligibility age is determined by the application deadline of February 15, 2024. It is understood that members of the International Jury may be acquainted with some participants in the competition because of past associations (for example, previous competitions, music festivals, master classes, or enrollment at academic institutions). Current students of jury members can participate in the competition but must disclose that information in the application or will be disqualified. Jury members whose student/s are competing must disclose the affiliation with the student and will be excused from voting.
