Supporting the Competition

The Leeds International Piano Competition has unearthed some of the most extraordinary musicians of the 20th Century; paving the way for artists such as Radu Lupu, Murray Perahia, and Sir Andras Schiff to entertain and inspire audiences all across the world.

As the Competition looks forward to an exceptional and ambitious future under Artistic Directors Adam Gatehouse and Paul Lewis, we ask you to join and support us in nurturing the future generations of world-class musicians here in Leeds.

We need to raise £2 million every three years to stage the Competition, with the generosity of our supporters and partners ensuring that The Leeds is able to remain at the forefront of international music-making and education.

Please contact David Ward (Development Director) to discuss how you would like to support the Competition.
