SOM Student Denis Evstyukhin Competing in International Chopin Competition in Warsaw

Denis Evstyukhin (D.M.A. candidate, piano, student of Alexander Braginsky) is currently competing in the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, one of the oldest and most venerated piano competitions in the world. The competition began with 366 contestants. After surviving the initial cut, Evstyukhin traveled to Warsaw in April for the next selection by international jury where the number of contestants was reduced to 81. Evstyukhin will return to Warsaw in October with the other remaining contestants to continue the competition, with all expenses paid by the Polish government.
