Last summer the San Antonio International Piano Competition merged with Musical Bridges Around the World. The competition was renamed after it’s longtime supporter Ruth Jean Gurwitz and will henceforth be known simply as “The Gurwitz.” In preparation for the next competition in 2020, Hexameron was the first performance highlighting the recent union between the two organizations.

We are thrilled to make The Gurwitz one of the most prestigious competitions in the world! The San Antonio Symphony will include the final round of the 2020 Gurwitz into the Symphony’s Classics Season. We are also proud to announce that
Maestro Sebastian Lang-Lessing will head the panel of international judges!
