The Sydney Piano Marathon


COVID-19 may have put paid to the 2020 Sydney International Piano Competition taking place this July but we’re thrilled to bring you The Sydney Piano Marathon instead.

From Thursday 23 July, 7.30pm AEST to Sunday 26 July, you can join us for a 60+ hour running webstream of the entire 2016 competition right here on our homepage. You’ll see every competitor, every round as well as fresh content from some of our 2016 laureates, our 2020 competitors and other friends and supporters of The Sydney.

Whether you’re in Sydney or Seattle, Beijing or Budapest, São Paolo or St Petersburg, hang on to the edge of your lounge seat, cheer on your favourites with an Iso-tini and (re)live the artistry and incredible music from that great competition. (No prizes for picking the winners!)

Our video production partners 5Stream have very generously donated their services to make this Marathon possible, as well as other valued partners. This way, we can stay true to our mission of supporting the world’s greatest young musicians as they embark on their performance careers. As you enjoy the webstream, we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation, of any amount, to sustain The Sydney through this difficult time.



Start: Thu 23 July 7.30pm AEST
End: Sun 26 July
