While public sector funding to support the competition was available in the early years of the SIPC, this has gradually reduced to the point where we are almost entirely dependent on our Patrons and Friends, and other donors to enable us to finance the competition.
Supporting SIPC demonstrates commitment to the arts in Scotland, and to the delivery of a prestigious international music event in Glasgow.
Join us now as a patron/friend to support the competition, as we work to bring this exciting festival of piano music to Scotland once again.
There are several categories of Patron/Friend, as below. We would ask you to indicate your preference by completing the attached form and returning it, with the appropriate remittance, to Robin Shaw, the Administrator at the address below. Cheques should be made payable to Scottish International Piano Competition or SIPC. Given the increase in postage costs over recent years, we aim to communicate by e-mail where possible. If you would prefer to retain postal deliveries from us you might consider an additional donation to assist with these costs.
