    This is not an international competition (is only for UK citizens) so it is not really a relevant stepstone towards an international carreer

  • E. Meyerhoffer says:

    Soprano Siân Dicker is a remarkable young singer; she performed recently at the Oxford Lieder Festival in a recital with Krystal Tunnicliffe.
