Cardiff Singer of the World 2009

competitors_01_446 Greetings from Wales, where I am ensconced with the BBC putting several thousand subtitles on the broadcast items for the CARDIFF SINGER OF THE WORLD Competition, 2009, coming from St David’s Hall in Cardiff.  Very exciting contest, some terrific singing and wonderful music.  A great privilege to be part of it.  

For me, the fruits of several weeks’ hard work (slotted in between all the other things I have been doing lately!) commissioning and preparing the subtitle translations and editing the titles. 

Halfway through the week at the moment, Round 4 (out of 5) this evening… The Rosenblatt Song Prize Final (a separate competition) is on Friday, the main Final on Sunday.  Day-to-day coverage on BBC4, BBC Wales and Radio 3;  Sunday’s Final is broadcast on BBC2 at 5.30 – don’t miss it!

    Correction — it seems Mr Rosenblatt is not sponsoring the Song Prize this time.

    Update (Friday): all very exciting so far. Five worthy (and perhaps unexpected) finalists lined up for Sunday’s grand finale. Don’t miss the almost-live TV coverage of the final on BBC2 at 17.30 on Sunday, and the Song Prize final which will be brodcast on Friday 19 June.
