With the implementation of the vaccine and the Covid Certificate, the Prix de Lausanne 2022 can run its competition in person from 31 January to 6 February 2022.
At the end of this month, 77 candidates will be going to Montreux, the competition's temporary home, to enjoy a week of coaching and classes with eminent teachers and compete during the Selections (Friday 4 February) and the Finals (Saturday 5th).
The public will be able to attend the various events taking place during the week only with a valid Covid Certificate under the currently applicable measures (information will be updated regularly on prixdelausanne.org).
Due to the restrictions put into place for entering Switzerland, two of the Jury members previously announced – Laetitia Pujol and Yuri Fateev – will not be able to come. Kathleen McNurney and Arman Grigoryan will be joining the 2022 jury.
