Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the competition has delayed its various sessions by one year, and launched an @Home Competition initiative

Queen Elisabeth Competition

In this time of COVID-19, the Queen Elisabeth Competition has announced a few postponements to its schedule. The piano session, originally due to take place this May, has been moved to May 2021. As a result, all the following sessions will be postponed by one year: the cello session scheduled for 2021 will take place in 2022, the 2022 singing competition will be held in 2023 and the 2023 violin session will be organized in 2024.

The age limit for candidates will be raised by one year, for the complete cycle of sessions, i.e. until the piano competition of 2025.

In the meantime the competition is launching the ‘Queen Elisabeth @ Home Competition’ initiative, sharing highlights from past competitions through audio, video and photo archives.

All the information concerning the postponement of the sessions will be available on the competition website: www.queenelisabethcompetition.be
