Ever since the BPSE was established in 1993, two piano competitions and one chamber music masterclass & competition are organised every year. 2015 marked the twenty-third anniversary of these competitions:

These competitions bring together aspiring and promising student-pianists/chamber musicians to compete for cash prizes, the Beethoven Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians and opportunities to play in competition-winners’ recitals organised by the BPSE.

The Senior Competition takes place in November/December, while the Junior Competition and Chamber Music Competition are held each Spring.
