Welcome to the Atterbury National Piano Competition!

Congratulations to the worthy winners of the 2017 competition!

Thank you to all the sponsors, the judges, the participants, their parents and teachers as well as the organisers!

The competition was started for young pianists to test their skills on a level playing field, to give them exposure to the stage, and to give recognition to their talent and hard work. It also prepares them for the Unisa National Piano Competition, as well as the international arena.
The competition will again be hosted in the fantastic Atterbury theatre in Pretoria.
We would like to thank Louis van der Watt of the Atterbury Property for his vision, and for Atterbury Trust being the main sponsor.

We look forward to the 2018 competition, and invite all our young pianists to be part of this wonderful event.

Willie de Jager (Chairman)
