Official Accompanists

For every day of competitions for which an accompanist is required, we appoint an official accompanist. Competitors do not have to use this accompanist, but if they wish to do so, they should tick the relevant box on the entry form.

If you request to use an official accompanist, the section head will send you that person’s contact details and the fees that you would need to pay together with the information about the day of the competition.  The same fees are are payable for all the festival accompanists. As we need to appoint an official accompanist for about 30 days of competitions, different people will be appointed for different days.
