12 pianists survive first round of Van Cliburn Competition

The first round of the Van Cliburn Competition is over and 12 pianists are left standing. This group includes Haochen Zhang, a blind pianist from China. None of the American competitors made it. I had been hoping that Stephen Beus, who was raised in Othello, Washington would clear the first set of hurdles, but alas.

A group of piano enthusiasts, led by Portland Piano International's Harold Gray is leaving Portland today to hear the second round, which starts tomorrow.
