2020 24rd RICARD VIÑES INTERNATIONAL PIANO COMPETITION
It is with our deepest regret that we have come to the difficult, but necessary, decision to have to cancel this year’s 24th RVIPC. The global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has hit Spain and Catalonia particularly hard, and has led to many events, such as our competition, being disrupted and cancelled.
Latest reports from politicians and researchers are claiming that the current situation requires an extended and unknown period of time, and the return to normality will be slow and uncertain.
In light of these circumstances we cannot guarantee that, on the scheduled dates of our competition, we can adhere to the necessary requirements which must affect participants, jury, orchestra, guest families, public and other collaborators.
We deeply appreciate your interest in our piano competition and we are sure you will understand that we take this decision for the benefit of people’s health.
You are invited to browse our website and find all information about 2021 Competition. Dates, repertoire, jury, deadline and rules will be, as far as possible, similar to the current ones. We trust that you will understand our regret in having to make this decision, and look forward to receiving your registration in 2021.
