Dear friends!

With great pleasure I announce the beginning of the application period for

participation in the International online contest of instrumentalists as part of the

5th International Summer Academy "Grand Piano in Palace".

Musical life in the new realities of the pandemic inevitably pushes us to be

flexible and take a modern approach to organization. Equipping the festival with

new technical possibilities, we follow traditions, strengthen creative connections

and preserve the quality and level of organization of such a precious event.

Since its inception, the Grand Piano in Palace has been an integral part of St

Petersburg's cultural life and a significant part of the biographies of the

festival’s participants. It is a true celebration of music for professionals and music

enthusiasts alike.

"Grand Piano in Palace - 2021" in its new format includes a series of online

auditions for performers on various instruments of different ages. In order to

preserve the main idea of the festival - a grand piano in a palace - we decided to

hold the closing ceremony, the awarding of the prize winners and the Gala

concert in the White Hall of the Marble Palace of the State Russian Museum. The

genius of the venue expands the consciousness of a young musician, inspires

him, ignites his heart and mind for further creativity. The event will take place in

June-July, 2021

The new online format of the Grand Piano in Palace festival continues to reflect

its goal of providing the best possible environment for musicians to create. We

will go to great lengths to ensure that the spirit of creative dialogue and

celebration of music is maintained throughout the festival.

On behalf of the entire Grand Piano in Palace team, I wish all participants

inspiration and success!
