Guthman Keyboard Competition at Georgia Tech

Jazz/Classical Keyboard Competition at Georgia Tech

A piano competition at an engineering school? Why not! For the past nine years Georgia Tech alumnus Richard Guthman has sponsored a national keyboard competition in honor of his musical wife Margaret.

Because the Guthmans love both jazz and classical music, the competition is one of the few in the nation that includes both categories for high school and college students. State of the Arts visited the competition this year and discovered a dazzling array of talent among the competitors, including four young virtuosos right here in Georgia.
