Following the spread of the Coronavirus and the emergency guidelines to stem the epidemic in Italy and around the world, the Artistic Committee of the Verona International Piano Competition has decided to cancel the IX edition of the Competition which should have been held from 7 to October 10, 2020.
The uncertainty about the progress of the epidemic, together with the concern of not being able to guarantee all competitors the highest standards of personal safety, has forced the ethical choice to postpone this appointment to 2021.
In the certainty that we will be able to meet with even more enthusiasm to celebrate, with the great Music of Art, the exit from this dramatic situation and at the same time a new rebirth, we want to extend our sincere wishes to everyone, especially to those people who are fighting against disease. At the same time, we extend our sincere thanks to all the organizations, institutions, sponsors and friends who support us.
