Sydney International Piano Competition

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and necessary restrictions on travel and public gatherings, we have taken the regrettable and difficult decision to postpone the 12th Sydney International Piano Competition to a later date in 2021 – to be advised. The competition will no longer proceed on 8 – 25 July 2020; nor the national capital city tour in July/August or the winners’ return concert in October. For more information, please click below.
