There are plenty of ways to get involved with the Hastings International Piano, from loaning a piano for rehearsals, accommodating a pianist or accompanist, or volunteering to help. Read on to find out more.

Hastings International Piano relies enormously on its team of volunteers to assist in the smooth running of the competition and our festival. In the White Rock Theatre, they are always on hand to help contestants and visitors alike. They drive our contestants to rehearsal pianos and even host contestants and accompanists.

Among our great team, we have professionals in the fields of music, management, administration and journalism, and all have generously brought their collective expertise to support us in our continuing aim, which is to provide an excellent experience for everyone throughout the competition and festival.

Whether you would like to volunteer to help, are able to host a contestant at the next competition, want to assist throughout the year in an administrative role, or have a piano you would like to offer for rehearsal, we’d like to hear from you.

For further details of our future volunteering opportunities, please contact us.

If you would like to host a pianist during the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition please email our Office Manager, Jess Young.
