Australian National Piano Awards - Semi Final
Friday 14 October, 12.00pm - 5.00pm

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

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.

Following a week of solo recitals, selected Award finalists will play in the semi final as they strive to win over $65,000 in prize money and perform impressive classical masterpieces by Bach, Haydn, Schubert, Mozart, Beethoven 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 works by Australian composers.

In the lead up to the grand final, three adjudicators will listen intently and appraise every performance, while audiences can vote for their favourite pianist in the Lorna Speechley Memorial Prize for the People’s Choice.

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