Her Royal Highness, Princess Irene of Greece, will be in Salt Lake City Thursday-Saturday, June 27-29, when five winners will be selected in the final rounds of the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition.
Princess Irene was a student of Bachauer, her countrywoman, for four years, and the two often performed the Mozart double piano concerto in concert together."The Princess is the royal patroness of the Bachauer Competition," said Paul Pollei, who directs the triennial event. "She lives in Spain with King Carlos and her sister, Queen Sofia, and devotes much of her time to humanitarian causes in Europe."
Princess Irene last visited here in 1986, when competitions were still being held biennially.
