The Ibla competition, featuring pianists, singers, instrumentalists and composers from more than 50 countries, is held each summer as a showcase for musical talent of the highest degree.

This year's touring group includes accordionist Patryk Sztabinski from Poland, soprano Eija Raisanen and pianist Liisa Pimia from Finland, and pianist Jason Chiang from the United States. Selections will include compositions by Bach, Verdi, Puccini, Chopin, Bartok and other masters, as well as works written or improvised by the performers.
