Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia
Carlingford Music Centre along with Casio Australia are Happy to announce our sponsorship of the 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia. A brief history of the Sydney International Piano Competition (SPICA)
The Sydney International Piano Competition has, from its inception, held events at the highest international level inspiring pianists and audiences alike and stimulating interest in the piano and music in general. It has provided a showcase platform for outstanding pianists from all over the world and assisted with the development of their careers as concert artists.
It is one of the major international events of its kind in the world. Founded by the late Miss Claire Dan AM, OBE, Rex Hobcroft AM and Robert Tobias, it was inaugurated in July 1977 and has since been held every four years, except in 1988 when it was brought forward to coincide with the Bicentenary of Australia celebrations. The Competition was admitted as a member of the Geneva based World Federation of International Music Competitions in 1978, the first Australian competition to be accepted as a member.
We will be there from the 6-23 of July 2016. More information located here
