Abstract. The article clarifies the influence of globalization on the musical culture of Ukraine, in particular, on international piano competitions. It emphases the role of global music organizations, which play an important integrative role in the processes of international artistic exchange and at the same time are a communication field for the demonstration of the best national artistic creative practices. In the field of international music competitions, the most influential organizations, in particular, are the World Federation of International Music Competitions, European Union of Music Competitions for Youth, Alink-Argerich Foundation, etc. The study of information materials of Ukrainian international piano competitions, which are the members of these prestigious international organizations, revealed global trends in the development of the competition and festival movement. Specific examples of international music festivals and other art projects initiated by the organizing committees of Ukrainian piano competitions have shown that they contribute to the development and promotion of Ukraine’s cultural identity globally, help spread the best national traditions of musical performance in the world and are one of the best forms of cultural diplomacy.
