Announcement of First Round of the 11th Hamamatsu International Piano Competition 2021

The global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic still remains unpredictable. Japan, like many other countries,
has imposed stricter immigration restrictions on travelers from overseas. In view of this situation,
and to avert any risks linked to the pandemic, Hamamatsu City and Hamamatsu Cultural Foundation
have decided to adopt "Video Screening" for the First Round judgment. Consequently,
the Competition is scheduled to be held from the second round onwards at the venue, ACTCITY Hamamatsu concert hall.

We sincerely would like to ask for your understanding in this change.
