ue to the evolving pandemic circumstances across Australia, the Board of the Australian National Piano Award has decided to postpone the 2021 Award. Further announcements will be made once the details of the new dates are confirmed.

Due to the evolving pandemic circumstances across Australia, the Board of the Australian National Piano Award has decided to postpone the 2021 Award that was scheduled to be presented in Shepparton from 4 – 9 October 2021.

Unfortunately, it is not feasible to consider programming the Award this year as the restrictions and lockdowns are constantly shifting across the different Australian states. 

Our priority is to ensure the safety of all our finalists, adjudicators, audiences, partners and other stakeholders.

Further announcements will be made once the details of the new dates are confirmed.

While this news is disappointing, we appreciate your support and patience as we manage these changes. 

Sincerely yours,
Darryl G. Coote
President of the Board
Australian National Piano Award

The Award showcases some of Australia’s most brilliant emerging classical pianists.    

Over a week of solo recitals, the selected Award finalists will strive to win over $65,000 in prize money and perform impressive classical masterpieces that range from Bach, Haydn, Schubert, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and many other composers.  

Repertoires throughout the inspirational recital series will feature music from the Baroque, Classical, 19th Century Romantic and French Impressionist eras, as well as music written after 1950, including Australian classical works.   

Open to Australian and Australian-based pianists aged 21 to 35 years, the Award embodies the highest national and international music standards and recognises the pursuit of professional excellence, technical brilliance and extraordinary flair.  

In the lead up to the grand final, three adjudicators will listen and observe every performance, while audiences can vote for their favourite solo recital in the Lorna Speechley Memorial Prize.  

Riverlinks and Greater Shepparton City Council proudly play host and support the Australian National Piano Award every two years. 

Audience warning: audiences should acknowledge that the Australian National Piano Award is a competition and respectfully remain quiet throughout all Award finalist performances during the solo recitals, semi final and grand final.
