First established in 2010, the Emilio del Rosario Piano Concerto Competition was created in honor of master piano teacher Emilio del Rosario. Del Rosario dedicated his life to the art of teaching and nurturing pianists to the highest standards.
Many of his students have gone onto successful careers in music and have achieved great accomplishments largely in part to his guidance and strife for perfection. This competition hopes to continue his legacy of excellence by providing the next generation of young pianists an opportunity to perform with an orchestra and help them to realize their musical potential.
