Singer Registration Happy Birthday Händel 2019

We will accept registrations for singers on Sunday 4th March, 6 pm German time.

The great run

By our experience the approx. 450 singing places are booked out within half an hour. Thus, we recommend to login punctually. If at first you do not manage to get your tickets, please keep trying. It seems the system can’t handle the demand too well and does not present all tickets available.

And even if you do not manage to get your singing ticket on Sunday evening, please register for the waiting list. By our experience in the 3 months before “Happy Birthday Händel” a lot of cancellations occur, and we can take in many singers from the waiting list.

What else is to be considered?
