The first international piano competition ‘’Banjalucki Bijenale’’ took place in Banja Luka in 2008. The head organizer and initiator of this competition is ‘Vlado Milosevic’ music school from Banja Luka supported by the cultural centre Banski dvor that, for the needs of this competition ceded its concert hall.

The guideline for the competition was to gather as many young and talented pianists and their teachers, in order to obtain positive exchange of knowledge, experiences and energy.

Students and teachers contest in piano solo and piano duo (for two-piano four hands), all supervised by a professional jury made of eminent piano artists and pedagogues.

Our design is to improve our future competitions and make them diverse in order to inspire students and teachers to achievie better results and greater accomplishments.
