VIRTUAL COMPETITION
Piers directs Sydney International Online Piano Competition

The uncertainties of the ongoing global pandemic into 2021 and the mandatory safety restrictions on public gatherings, travel and international borders have all made it impossible to proceed with any certainty in planning a live competition in July.

With the enthusiastic support of our competitors, Artistic Director Piers Lane AO, jury members and generous donors, we will now hold the first-ever Sydney International Online Piano Competition from 2–18 July 2021.

This will consist of 29 online sessions over three weeks (just like the usual competition).

Preliminary Rounds: Fri 2–Fri 9 July | Events 1-16.
In each session will be two competitors presenting a 40-minute recital. Semi Finalists announced in Event 16.

Semi Finals: Sat 10–Thu 15 July | Events 16-22.
In each session will be 2 of the 12 semi-finalists presenting a 50-minute recital. Finalists announced in Event 22.

Finals: Fri 16–Sun 18 July | Events 23-28.
In each session will be 1 of the 6 finalists presenting an 80-minute recital.

The Winners and Prizes will be announced in Session 29 on Sunday 18 July.
