MISSION STATEMENT

The University of Miami Frost Preparatory Program Competition is a celebration of young artists. The competition aims to give an opportunity for the participants to enrich their piano studies, perform on professional stages and serve the community through outreach concerts. Our goal is to encourage young musicians to put their gifts to the service of others so that through the music they may contribute to bring people together and promote the goodness and beauty that is found in true art. "To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts- such is the duty of the artist." Robert Schumann.
