Announcing Showcase 2020 Selection Committee Members

Dear friends,

The IPAY Selection Committee will soon meet in Philadelphia from June 17 - 19 to adjudicate the 115 artistic applications submitted for Showcase 2020!  We are thrilled to announce that our call for new committee members resulted in a competitive pool of applicants, and that eight new members will join the Showcase 2020 Selection Committee this year.

We will welcome four varied international voices to the committee from China, Sweden, Australia, and the United Kingdom, along with four fresh perspectives from the United States hailing from Pittsburgh, New York, Philadelphia, and New England. 

This year, we have received another varied  pool of excellent performances for young audiences from all over the world, resulting in a rigorous and competitive selection panel. If you missed our email with 2020 Application Statistic Summary, you can download it here, or find it our our website.
