LYPCO – London Youth International Piano Competition
April 10 - July 10
Deadline: July 10th
A love for music and specifically for the piano has inspired our founder, Dr Sally Wave, to create this international piano competition in Wimbledon. She says: “I love to organise events and all the love I am giving returns to me as positive energy. “All of us find that the pandemic is often dragging down our spirits. That’s why after last year’s planned competition could not go ahead, this year it was decided to press on and appear anew as an online event. “Music is an art that needs to be valued always. As in all the ages back and in times to come, music will lift the heart. Music is teaching us not to dive deep down with depression. Stand by your art whatever happens around you: this should be our slogan in life. Especially in these challenging days, people need to be energised by music.
“Why online – because musicians needs to encourage each other not to give up, not to stop playing. We will succeed in going through the darkness if we hold fast to the flame of music like a torch to show us a better way and soothe our hearts with the beauty of sound.”
