PIANO CLASS DETAILS

The 2021 piano competitions will be online and there will be fewer competitions than normal. However, both the Emanuel Trophy and the Appelbe elite competitions will be running. To find out about these competitions, please see the separate web pages devoted to them by clicking on the links to the left.

Entrants will submit a video of their performance rather than performing live. Every competitor will receive a written adjudication sheet and a certificate of participation. All entrants will be invited to a Zoom meeting in the week beginning Monday 10th May when the adjudication and selected performances will be played.

The closing date is Friday 16th April.
