As a consequence of the global COVID-19 situation and the strict travel and public gathering guidelines, we have taken the regrettable and difficult decision to postpone the 12th Sydney International Piano Competition to a later date – to be advised.

The competition will no longer proceed as planned on 8 – 25 July 2020; nor the national capital city tour in July/August or the winners’ return concert in October.

Like everyone else in the world, we have suddenly had to pause, pivot and set our sights on rescheduling the competition when the COVID-19 situation is under control. We are working hard to find new dates with all our stakeholders; at this point it is likely to be in 2021.

We have been very well supported with donations and ticket sales to date. For all that, we deeply and sincerely thank you for all your efforts and support. We will stay in touch with any new information as soon as we possibly can.
