The Cliburn will present the 2020 Cliburn Festival: Beethoven at 250. The festival will feature works spanning the career of Ludwig van Beethoven performed by highly accomplished artists-in-residence (including two Cliburn laureates) in five concerts over four days. The artists-in-residence will be joined by local musicians to showcase the versatility and variety of Beethoven's music.

The Cliburn joins a worldwide celebration of the 250th birthday of one of the world’s greatest composers: Beethoven. He is revered as a musical revolutionary, having propelled music and its capabilities into the modern era, and also beloved for his profound connection to the joys, griefs, and hopefulness of humanity.

Cliburn Festival artists-in-residence will come together to explore his remarkable oeuvre of solo, chamber, and vocal works in five concerts over four days. It will be a showcase of the genius and spirit of Beethoven. The festival features pianists Kenny Broberg (2017 Cliburn silver medalist), Sean Chen (2013 Cliburn third-prize winner), and Filippo Gorini (2015 Telekom-Beethoven first-prize winner); and the Verona Quartet.
