The eleventh competition brought the Maj Lind up to the 1960s. This time it was expanded into a national event and not confined to students at the Sibelius Academy. A record 15 pianists entered for the 1966 competition. The competitors have had a chance to be the soloist with a symphony orchestra since 1968. In the early years, it was the Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra.
