From the beginning, host families played an integral part of the Concours Géza Anda, and it is not easy to describe their significance adequately. Young pianists from all over the world travel to Zurich to take part in an extremely difficult contest. Naturally, this brings about much uncertainty, nervousness, even anxiety. Our host families offer all kinds of support, a firm base during their stay, and more than anything else, a home. Many laureates still speak of how they were received and looked after in Zurich. Often lifelong friendships ensued.
We would like to thank the host families, many of which have supported us faithfully for decades, from the depth of our heart.
At the same time, we would love to extend this circle of wonderful people and encourage you to join! Why don’t you write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Possession of a piano for practicing is not a condition.
