Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition
The 2021 Competition takes place in Hastings from 25th February – 6th March 2021.
The Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition has evolved from its earliest days as part of Hastings Music Festival to become an internationally-renowned competition for young concert pianists from around the world, attracting 170 applicants in 2019 across global auditions, 40 of which came to compete in Hastings. Their prize: the opportunity to perform with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on our two-night final and to win a first prize of £15,000.
With a first prize of £15,000, the competition gives six finalists the opportunity to perform a complete concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The Competition entry is now by video audition only in a move to become more environmentally friendly, and entry via the website closes on October 19th 2020.
Contestants must be aged between 16 to 30 for the duration of the competition (25/02/2021 – 06/03/2021).
Entry is by VIDEO AUDITION ONLY
