Superstar Handel for the whole family
Handel’s dramatic works are about love, jealousy and power, subjects that will never go out of fashion. And the music he composed is as good and just as catchy as ever. The Festival aims to win over and enthuse not only adults but also children and young people for Handel’s music, and to offer a platform for young ensembles and talented artists.
This year the »göttingen händel competition enters its third round. Six ensembles contend for the coveted, partly endowed prizes. In addition to a »Night Concert of the Eeemerging ensemble Concerto di Margherita, the »Sunrise! Concert will be given by a young virtuoso on a very special instrument. The programme for children and young people, ‘Händel 4 Kids!’ offers popular formats again this year, such as the Children's University, the »Family version of the opera and a »Baby Concert.
For the new Festival season the »Händel 4 Kids! -Website got a fresh layout. The approach has remained: a blog ‘by children for children’, to discover Handel's works and interesting facts from the baroque era. This year the blog is being maintained by the 4th grade of the Gerblingerode primary school.
