Calling all entries for Auckland’s premier secondary school piano event!


Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is proud to present the 10th annual Rönisch Auckland Secondary Schools Piano Competition, and we invite all Auckland schools to register their representative to compete for the prestigious title of Auckland’s top secondary school pianist.


The competition is open to all secondary schools in the greater Auckland area. Each school may enter one representative at Grade 8 level or above, only.


Established in 2008, the competition encourages excellence in piano playing and has become a rite of passage for many emerging young artists who have gone on to start international careers.


The competition is presented alongside Patron and competition founder, Bryan Sayer, with the support of the University of Auckland School of Music and Raye Freedman Arts Centre. Prize money is kindly donated by Warren Sly of Sly’s Pianos.


All competitors will compete in Round 1 on Saturday 21 October.


Six finalists will progress to the grand final on Sunday 22 October.

Please contact Naomi if you are interested.
