Change of program due to Covid-19

It is with a heavy heart that I have to postpone the 17th International Edvard Grieg Piano Competition, due to the Covid-19 situation. The application deadline is also postponed, and we will be back with more information by the end of April.

Even though we are saddened to postpone the competition, we must consider everyone’s health and safety first.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all to the 17th Grieg Competition in beautiful Bergen. We will make it worth the wait!
