European SUZUKI™ Piano Celebrations, Warsaw POLAND

Notice of Cancellation

The European Suzuki Piano Celebrations 2020 have unfortunately had to be cancelled due to an insufficient number of registrations.

It is disappointing that the minimum attendance level required to hold the event was not reached.  Of the numbers required, only 53% of teachers and 17% of students registered.

In addition, taking into account the complexities of programming combined with the uncertainty over the Covid-19 outbreak, the decision has been made not to extend the registration deadline but rather cancel the event. 

The Organising Committee wish to thank all those who did register for their support and assure them that they will be contacted regarding the refund of their registration fees.

The Organising Committee will look into the possibility of organising the Piano Celebrations again in 2022.
