The ceremony was held at the Lysenko Column Hall of the National Philharmonic of Ukraine in Kyiv.

Addressing the audience, Head of the Board of Directors of the Ukraine 3000 Fund Oleksandr Maksymchuk said, “We are proud that this competition exists in Ukraine, bearing the name of our famous compatriot Vladimir Horowitz. It has long become one of Ukraine’s calling cards.” He added that the Ukraine 3000 Fund is the contest’s permanent co-organizer. “Support to culture and the arts is one of our Fund’s priorities. We are convinced that the Ukrainian performers’ school with its many-decades traditions should enjoy full support of the state and philanthropists,” Mr. Maksymchuk said, adding that the Ukraine 3000 Fund would proceed with extending its support to the competition. Mr. Maksymchuk wished to all its participants “inspiration, confidence, and brilliant performance; and to the members of the respected jury – unexpected discoveries and finding new talents able to get a ticket to the wide world and make it admire them.”

The ceremony finished with a concert.
