Update 13.03.2020, 11:15 O'clock

 

Due to ongoing developments in connection with the corona virus and the recommendations of the cantonal health department, we are now organizing the Steinway Piano Competition without an audience (parents, families, spectators) in the Kammermusiksaal 1.  

 

The competition will take place. All participants play as planned (see timetable), but only in front of the competition jury members (plus 1-2 persons from the organizing committee).

 

We ask accompanying persons of the participants to reduce to one person

 

Also, for your own protection, avoid gathering several people (also in front of the Kammermusiksaal 1). Spread out in the corridors and at the entrance of the Zurich Conservatory Boulding.

 

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to your performances.

Best regards,

 

The team of Unite Classics

Update 07.03.2020

Due to the current situation and the spread of the coronavirus, the Federal Council classifies the situation in Switzerland as a special situation under the Epidemics Act. 

 

We would like to inform you that the Steinway Piano Competition and Masterclasses are within the permitted range of the number of audience members and therefore it will take place.

 

We kindly ask all participants of the Competition and Masterclasses as well as accompanying persons and any auditory to take special protective procedures such as hand hygiene, cough and cold hygiene take into consideration.

 

Persons who feel ill, who come from risk regions or who have had contact with people suffering from coronavirus are not allowed to participate or attend the Steinway Piano Competition and Masterclasses.

 

We recommend the following actions according to the Federal Office of Public Health BAG:

- Do not shake hands with each other.

- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or use a hand disinfectant before entering Chamber Music Hall 1 and the rehearsal room.

- If you have to cough or sneeze, hold a tissue in front of your mouth and nose. Then dispose of it in a rubbish bin, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or use a hand disinfectant. If you do not have a tissue, cough and    sneeze in the arm bend.

 

The team from "Unite Classics" will regularly disinfect the grand piano in Chamber Music Hall 1. To avoid permanent damage to the instrument, we ask you not to do this yourself.

 

Please check regularly this page for the latest information about the competition and the master classes. Should the Federal Council (BAG) further increase events, you will find information here.
