International Piano Competition in the Memory of Vladimir Horowitz.

Among a variety of cultural and artistic events that help Ukraine’s international integration efforts, International Competition for Young Pianists in the Memory of Vladimir Horowitz deserves a special mention. The contest was founded in 1995 in honor of the legendary pianist Horowitz who was born in Kiev, Ukraine.

Ivan Karabits co-founded the competitions and presided over the judges panel ever since its launch. It is the only competition in Ukraine which inspired the establishment of the School of Performing Arts in 1998. It was later renamed into International Summer Music Academy.
