Club 32

In 2026, when once again the Sydney International Piano Competition takes place LIVE in Australia, 32 young musicians will have their opportunity to shine. These young artists will be some of the most accomplished and talented musicians from across the globe. 

In the lead up to the 2026 competition, Club 32 will bring together a group of enlightened philanthropists to provide crucial financial support for those talented young pianists as they vie for this coveted award. 

Club 32 donations support the costs of hosting the competitors in Sydney including their flights and travel, accommodation, practice venues and daily needs. Each Club 32  donor will have their support directly aligned with a competitor, and will be credited alongside them in the official online program guide and throughout the competition. Exclusive events for Club 32 donors to meet the competitors will be held just prior to the start of competition. Many personal bonds and lasting connections have been made in the past between donors and their competitors – the next stars of the world’s concert halls. 

Club 32 provides a practical and powerful way to ensure that these talented young artists can compete at their best, and your donation to Club32 is fully tax-deductible.
