Your donation constitutes an important contribution to the present and future of the Göttingen International Handel Festival, one of the most renowned festivals of its kind. It will help to safeguard the long-term survival of an important piece of musical culture with a long tradition and fame far beyond regional borders.
Holding numerous activities and events right through the year, the Göttinger Händel-Gesellschaft e. V. offers a lively forum for everyone who loves Handel. Almost 100 years ago, music enthusiasts resident in Göttingen brought Handel’s operas back to life, setting in motion an initiative that is known worldwide as the ‘Göttingen Handel Renaissance’. This level of commitment remains to this day, the endeavours opening people’s eyes and ears to Handel’s sonorous, richly varied and highly emotional music. The Handel Society is rooted in the heart of Göttingen and its citizens, and it offers cultural highlights that draw abundant praise from international critics and give unbounded delight to audiences.
Today, the Society has more than 1000 members who help to cultivate the oeuvre of the famous Baroque composer. You, too, can show your cultural ‘public spirit’ by becoming a member of the Göttinger Händel-Gesellschaft e.V. Share with us our passion for Handel’s operas, for Baroque music in general, and for the cultural life of Göttingen and the region!
