It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the First International Piano Competition in London. It will take place in Warehouse Waterloo London, one of the world’s leading educational music institutions.
To perform in London, great music capital of the world, is a true dream for many aspiring young musicians.
Now they have an opportunity to achieve their dream.
We are looking forward to hear the participants and hope to discover some amazing new emerging talents.

We are proud to welcome you to our first edition of the UK Piano Open 2020, organized by European Foundation for Support of Culture, which is taking place in the capital of the UK – London.
This international piano competition will provide an opportunity and a new effective platform for young pianists, not only to show their technique, skills and professionalism, but also their personality and knowledge when interpreting the compositions which they will be performing.
