The Sheepdrove Piano Competition Final

A wonderful opportunity to hear the best international piano students drawn from all the major UK conservatoires – and to cast your vote for the audience prize!

Founded in 2009, this notable competition, established by the Sheepdrove Trust, is open to candidates aged 26 and under from the eight major UK music colleges, and attracts young pianists of the highest standard from around the world. Today’s competition, which this year has an emphasis on Bach, features four shortlisted finalists and takes place in the tranquil setting of Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre on the Lambourn Downs.

The overall winner will perform a solo recital in the Corn Exchange on Monday 16 May as part of the Festival’s popular Young Artists Lunchtime Recital Series.
