New Horizones: the 2022 Festival

Reflection and Encore

Horizons often hold moments of breathtaking beauty that can strike us anywhere and at any time. New Horizons, the Göttingen International Handel Festival 2022, was brimming with such “moments made for our ears”. Some of the most impressive ones can now be rediscovered or newly discovered on our Handel Channel! The Festival's maiden voyage under new artistic direction was guided by the spirit of new beginnings, the ambition to broaden our own horizons. This is what we aim to keep doing: In the fall of 2022, we will host two young ensembles: La Camerata Chromatica and Sarbacanes. Both are part of the European cooperation project EEEMERGING+ and are gearing up to set out on their own. We warmly welcome you to join them on their journey!

The program

of the 2023 International Handel Festival is already starting to take on definite shape. One thing is for sure: As is customary, all program details will be revealed no earlier than at the annual spring press conference, during which the 2023 Festival Magazine will also be released. But even before that, it's worth visiting this website regularly – as you know, the early bird catches the (ear) worm! In any case, you can look forward to which new shores the Artistic Director and Managing Director will lead you to next May.
