EXTRA INFORMATION
References - these should also be sent lhfhsc@gmail.com
Application - You do not need to send a paper copy of your application - email or the online form is fine. Perhaps send it twice to ensure it gets through. We will let you know that we have received it. If you can scan passports etc. there should be no need to send anything by post.
Repertoire - the Competition is all Handel and there should be no repetition of arias.
Da capo - there is no rule, but it is better to make an internal cut rather than miss out 
a da capo.

Going over the time limit - if you plan a programme longer than the required time you could be penalised.
