Semi-Final – Handel Singing Competition 2019
Sponsored by Prof. Schumann GmbH.
Following the closed first round of the competition, the dozen or so semi-finalists come together for their first public performance, accompanied by harpsichord. They each sing for fifteen minutes in an all-Handel programme and the judges will put five or six singers through to the final. The panel of adjudicators include internationally acclaimed singers Ian Partridge, Catherine Denley and Michael George.
