The 2020 67th Annual Washington International Competition for Piano has been POSTPONED until Spring 2021.
The new date of the competition will be announced as soon as it is confirmed. At that time, the Chairs will communicate with all Semifinalists and Alternates to determine their availability for the competition. All previous arrangements remain intact. Housing in private homes will be offered to all semifinalists. These accommodations will include access to an excellent piano.
The WIC competitions will continue to be held each spring in annual rotation: Strings and Composition in 2022, Voice in 2023, and Piano again in 2024.
In light of the one-year delay of the competition, the Chairs have decided to offer all semifinalists the option to modify their programs, if desired, as long as the repertoire conforms to the parameters of the competition guidelines. Any changes in repertoire must be approved by the Chairs. The deadline for approval will be announced when the final dates are confirmed.
