Honens discovers, nurtures and presents Complete Artists—21st century pianists for 21st century audiences.

In 1991, philanthropist Esther Honens established the Honens International Piano Competition Foundation in her hometown of Calgary, Canada, with a gift of $5 million. Her dream was to discover and launch the careers of the world’s most promising pianists—a dream that has become a Canadian success story. Honens Laureates are acclaimed the world-over and the triennial ‘Search for the Complete Artist’ awards the largest prize of its kind—$100,000 and an artist development program valued at a half million dollars. Honens also presents concerts and 'Canada's international festival of piano' each year in Calgary in addition to nationwide learning and outreach programs.

Help Honens save on air travel costs. Your donation of Aeroplan miles makes it possible for 2018 Honens Prize Laureate Nicolas Namoradze to perform on concert stages around the world.
