Congratulations to James Algermissen and his father on placing first at the 2024 United States International Duo Piano Competition. This is their 5th straight win at this competition!

James Algermissen and Father win 5th Straight International Duo Piano Competition

 

For a fifth consecutive year, James Algermissen and his father were awarded First Place at the 2024 United States International Duo Piano Competition last week. He performed their original two-piano arrangement of Tal Zilber's piece, "Brahms in Salsa" – a Latin jazz stylization based upon Johannes Brahms's Hungarian Dance No. 5

Competitors from around the globe come together for a weekend of truly amazing music.  This year was the 25th Anniversary Celebration of this competition, now recognized as one of the fastest-growing and most respected Duo Piano Competitions in the world.

James' father said, "It was a special performance for us, as this year's USIDPC may be our final performance at the Competition since James will be a graduating Senior this May."

Congratulations to both father and son!
