IMPORTANT: Postponement of 2019 edition to 2020

Dear candidates, colleagues, students and professors,
 
Much to our regret, we have to announce that the board of the International Student LiedDuo Competition was compelled to postpone the envisioned 2019 edition. We have decided that the next edition will be held 12-15 March 2020 in Groningen.
 
These times appeared to be even more difficult than usual to raise funds for such a cultural events. Even some of our loyal subsidizers and supporters had less funds to grant, or even no money at all. Even if we were not that far from reaching our minimal budget, the financial risk at this moment would be to big, and organizing the edition would have been irresponsible. Postponing the competition will give us the time and opportunity to extend our fund acquisition activities, including the enrollment of private sponsors.
 
We wish we could have brought you better news.
 
On behalf of the ISLDC foundation, with kind regards,
 
Hans Eijsackers
Artistic director of the ISLDC
