2017年第15屆美國千島國際青年鋼琴比賽

美國千島國際青年鋼琴比賽的初衷是給青年鋼琴家們提供一個表演和分享音樂的平臺。我們希望把古典音樂帶到千島湖,鼓勵積極進取的青年藝術家。同時,選手們還可以享受紐約州北部的美景和聖勞倫斯河的美景。我們相信,這一定是一次空前絕後的藝術體驗。每年,當地的人們和藝術家們都建立了友誼。2017年第15屆千島國際鋼琴比賽將在美麗的聖勞倫斯河畔——Maple Grove城堡內舉行。
2014年,來自北京的17歲女孩李紅喜榮獲初級組三等獎。
千島群島是東安大略最受歡迎的景點之一,也是聖羅倫斯河最美的一段,河上的1800多島分屬於美國和加拿大。美國和加拿大許多藝術家都喜歡在這裏享受小島上與世隔絕的隱居生活,所以千島水域有許多豪宅,也有許多風格特立獨行的建築,整個水域就像一個藏寶庫,巡航其中,旖旎的風光俯拾皆是。柏德特城堡建於心形島上,這座宛如童話故事中的中古世紀造型城堡,是於1904年美國旅館業鉅子喬治柏· 德特(George C. Boldt)為其夫人所建。目前這座城堡已改為博物館,可供遊客參觀。
