The Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, in Shanghai, China has this week announced that its 2020 competition will be rescheduled to the 10th to the 29th of August, 2021 - due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The competition will not accept new applicants, though those who have already submitted applications will be given additional time to submit their video uploads.

The competition, although now be held in 2021, will be still be titled '2020 SISIVC' - to commemorate this year being Isaac Stern’s 100th birthday celebration.

"The health and safety of the participants, jury members, staff, and audience are our highest priority, and the difficulties connected to the epidemic do not allow us to guarantee a secure competition in the previously planned timeframe ... we believe it would be best to reschedule in order to ensure the competition takes place under the best possible circumstances," the competition's organizers have this week said.

"Isaac Stern’s belief in music obliges us to respect his commitment to excellence, and any attempt to hold the event under duress would not uphold his standards ... we are all currently under attack by this world pandemic, and we must remember that while a society without culture can survive, a society with culture elevates us."
