There are quite a few retreads or, if you like, battle-hardened players from the Cliburn and other stops along the competition circuit. In this go familiar profiles from the Cliburn are: Zlabys; Huang; and Fong.
Spencer Myer has the local buzz. But my vote goes to Chu-Fang Huang who has a ravising tone, and made in fact to the Cliburn finals.
Noteworthy, a local newspaper "The Plain Dealer" has put-up a blog or sorts for the competition. You can find it here. (Registration req).
Good luck to all!
