Along with the Alink-Argerich Foundation of which it is a member, the International Piano Competition of Ile de France condemns the war against the Ukrainian people.
For 22 years, the competition has welcomed, every year, more than 200 candidates from all over the world, without any discrimination regarding nationality, gender or religion, but with the firm belief that music is a universal language and a vehicle for peace.
The Competition Committee expresses its warmest and most supportive thoughts to the Ukrainian musicians who are enduring this tragedy. As a sign of solidarity, candidates of Ukrainian nationality will be exempted from the registration fee for the June 2023 session.
May music connect people in a universal community centred on beauty.
