I BOOKED FOR THE ROSSINI WORKSHOP, DO I STILL NEED TO PURCHASE THE VISITING CHOIR PACKAGE IF I WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE POP-UP PROGRAM WITH MY CHOIR?
The short answer to this question is no. If you take part in the 5-day Rossini Workshop, you are automatically eligible to free entry to the Singers’ Lounge and participation in the Pop-Up program, provided that any members of your choir that do not participate in the Rossini Workshop do purchase the Visiting Choir Package for themselves.
During each festival we collect any lost and found property and keep this ready for collection at the festival office. Lost property for the 2019 festival will be kept until 30 September 2019.
WHEN WILL THE 2020 PROGRAM BE ANNOUNCED?
We are currently planning for next year’s festival, and aim to announce the major workshops by October 2019. The full program will be released around April 2020. For updates, please keep an eye on our social media accounts and/or subscribe to our newsletter.
