Boston Piano Competition for Amateurs

The 2005 Boston International Piano Competition for Exceptional Amateurs is underway in Boston. Alas, no webcast.

The Boston Globe has a nice write up on competition:

"In their professional lives, the contestants are lawyers, physicians, engineers, physicists, CEOs, homemakers, educators, and flight attendants. But their passion is the piano, and this weekend they share their talents with the public -- and with five highly discerning judges.
For audiences, the biennial competition offers an opportunity to hear a wide range of music performed by pianists committed to playing for the sheer love of it, which can offer an extra frisson of excitement and emotion as players stretch their limits. "

The website for the competition can be found here.
