Announcement of cancellation regarding preliminary regional contests for 2021 Morris Finger-Picking Day

Earlier this year in March, Moridaira Musical Instruments had announced the cancellation of 2020 FPD along with the plan to eliminate audio based audition but instead to hold regional contests based on live performance in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka which will be organized for 2021 FPD.

However since then the situation surrounding COVID-19 has not yet come to an end, and there still remains the possibility of cancelling FPD scheduled in April 2021.

Due to this circumstance, in order to protect the safety of both contestants and audience as well as maintaining the fairness of the audition, regretfully we have decided to cancel 2021 preliminary regional contests after considerable discussion with Moridaira Musical Instruments (FPD organizer) and Regional contest organizers.

We understand this is an unpleasant news for those who have been preparing for the regional contests and also for those who have been looking forward to the event. But we appreciate your kind understanding as this action has been taken to avoid the risk of spreading the virus to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Thank you.
