Breve descrizione

2020, in the intense yet short life of the PianoTalents competition, is the year of the tenth edition. Covid 19, like for many other events, intended to cancel it.
But it didn't come to terms with our determination. Together with friends who in recent years have helped us carry out the competition, we have decided to take up this challenge and we confirm that PianoTalents will be held again this year, despite the coronavirus!
In a short time, we decided to carry out the selection online (the jury will evaluate remotely and the vote is scheduled between October 15th and 20th). The winners will perform live on Sunday, December 13th, at 4pm in the Casa Verdi hall of honor. An additional opportunity for all of us to imagine a return to more appropriate and usual practices, the importance of which we realize only in these exceptional events.
On that occasion, the Sponsors of the competition will personally deliver the scholarships and the public, finally "present", will be able to participate to choose the 3 special talents (in the Kids groups, from 6 to 9 years old, Young from 10 to 16, Senior from 17 to 21) who will be awarded another equally special prize.
Follow us also on social networks, to support us right now and to be updated on the latest news.

Subscription will start on 1st of May 2020 to 10th of October 2020.

The three sections of the Competition (Kids, Young, Senior) are divided into 7 sub-categories:
Kids Section
A Category: 6 and 7 years old
