La IBLA Foundation di New York City organizza un concorso per pianisti, cantanti, strumentisti e compositori che si tiene ogni anno a Ragusa Ibla in Sicilia. I vincitori sono stati presentati presso il Lincoln Center Alice Tully Hall e la Carnegie Hall di New York City, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Tchaikovsky Bolshoi Hall di Mosca oltre ad altre prestigiose Università negli USA, Canada, Europa, Russia, Indonesia e Giappone.

 

"The sunbaked island of Sicily, the largest and historically richest in the Mediterranean, is the scene of the annual IBLA GRAND PRIZE, a piano competition held in a hall buried among the clusters of 17th and 18th century stone buildings that crowd the little threads of streets.

The rocky town of only 80,000 lies just a few miles from where Ionian and Mediterranean meet at Sicily's southern most tip. Hearing piano-playing in this kind of setting is amazing. It is like the opening of an ornate and ancient casket only to find it stocked with glittering gems."

-Gordon Sparber, Winston-Salem Journal, NC, USA
