The S. Anselm's Piano Competition is an annual contest for young pianists aged 6 to 18 from schools across Derbyshire, South Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and surrounding counties. Pianists compete in graded classes from Preparatory Level to Grade 8 before eminent national adjudicators. There is a wonderfully positive and supportive atmosphere and where time permits, adjudicators offer masterclass style feedback after each class. The first and second place winners of each class are then invited to perform in a finalists' concert at which competition cups are presented to the overall winners.

We are delighted to confirm that our 2019 adjudicators will be Ben Andrew, Head of Keyboard at Stowe School and Susie Allan from Shrewsbury School.

Timetable

  • 9.00am − 1.15pm Competition classes
  • 2.00pm Finalists' Concert in the Hargreaves Hall

Competition classes and entry requirements

Classes will take place concurrently in both the S. Anselm's Library and the Hargreaves Hall, where all competitors will have the opportunity to perform on a grand piano.

The closing date for competition entries is Friday 22nd February. Places for busy classes will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so we encourage you to submit your entries as soon as possible.

Class timings will be confirmed after the closing date, to enable us to accommodate competitors who chose to enter more than one class (wherever possible).

How to enter…

Competitors may enter individually or as a group via their school or music teacher.

Competitors may enter more than one class, for example if wishing to compete in graded classes at different levels or compete in both a graded class and duet class.

There is no fee for entering.

Applications for entry are being accepted via the S. Anselm's website (www.sanselms.co.uk/piano-competition/) − follow the link below. Applications must be received by 17 March 2018.
