Handel and 2013

2nd January 2013

Happy New Year

We are now in the fast run-up to the
London Handel Festival, which includes the Handel Singing Competition.  The deadline for the HSC is on 11 January, so I hope that lots of singers in the UK, Europe and overseas are planning to apply.  They need to look at the HSC page where up-to-date details will be posted and the application form is available to download.  We have very distinguished adjudicators again this year.

Online booking for the Festival starts on
14 January and telephone booking on 21 January.  If you prefer to do things in writing you can send in your form by post and this will be processed as soon as possible as well.  We give priority to our Handel Supporters - obviously those who have give the most support will have their seats allocated first but we do need their orders by the end of January if at all possible, as we are not able to hold tickets indefinitely - we don't know who wants to come to what and when.  The oratorio and opera are likely to sell the most quickly. We are a very small box office and administration team so it does take time to sort out all the orders (some of which are quite complicated).  We hope that you will be patient as usual.
