2017 Hastings Piano Concerto Competition

Help needed: Intl Piano Concerto Competition

This month’s Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition, which starts at the White Rock Theatre on Thursday 22 February and runs until Saturday 3 March, is a tremendously exciting and important event. But it’s also complex and costly. And it could not happen without the support of the people of Hastings. Dominika Hicks writes.

Divas unleashed!

Whether it be Buxton or Bust or Opera South East’s Divas, we can do a whole lot of celebrating women in opera this weekend – and don’t forget the beautiful Thomasin Trezise and Midsummer Melodies at St John the Evangelist in St Leonards this Saturday! We are spoilt for choice here in 1066 country, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.

Gearing up for the Piano Concerto Competition

The first three weeks of March in Hastings are devoted to the Hastings Musical Festival, which has been going for more than a century.  It’s not a festival like those in Edinburgh or Brighton, but consists of a series of competitions for performers in music and dance.   In recent years the jewel in the crown of the Festival has been the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition, which takes place in the first week of March, the final being on Saturday  8 March, writes Antony Mair
