In addition to this it provides up to date information about the TCU/Cliburn Piano Institute, the International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs of 2000 at Texas Christian University, the Schedule of Events for the 2001 Eleventh Van  Cliburn International Competition in Bass Hall, and a short review of Fort Worth's noted Art Museums and Van Cliburn Competition Winners, Chairmen and Directors (1962-1997.)
