With great enthusiasm we looked forward to the 9th edition of the Steinway Piano Competition Belgium in 2021. Unfortunately, the competition did not escape the consequences of the Corona crisis. It is both practical and organizational not feasible for the organizing team to organize a competition with an audience that is at the same time compliant with all Corona safety regulations.
After much deliberation, it was therefore decided to postpone the 9th edition by one year. The competition will therefore not take place in 2021, but in 2022. The selection tests will take place on 5th and 6th of February 2022 and the final on March 13th 2022. We regret that we had to take this decision but comfort ourselves with the knowledge that in 2022 we will be able to enjoy a full 9th edition with the finals once again taking place in Bozar's Henry Le Boeuf Main Hall. With audience!
