Competitors who are not Hong Kong-based must arrange and pay their own round trip airfare. The total cost of bringing the Competitor’s own piano accompanist for the Semi-Final Round will be the responsibility of the Competitor.
The Organiser will provide Competitors with free lodging as well as transport subsidies for activities directly related to the Competition during the period 28 June – 3 July 2018.
Competitors must submit their complete programmes for both the Semi-Final Round and the Final Round.
For the Semi-Finals, Competitors must also send copies of vocal scores of the music of their chosen programmes, in the correct key with any cuts and variations clearly marked.
