Superstar Handel for the whole family
The Festival aims to win over and enthuse not only adults but also children and young people for Handel’s music. And it emphasizes to offer a platform for young ensembles and talented artists.
The fourth edition of the göttingen händel competition provides a stage for eight ensembles to compete in a musical competition. The winners will be awarded the 1st prize of the Göttinger Händel-Gesellschaft e. V. It comes with prize money of 5,000 € and the Prizewinners’ Concert. Being part of the EU-funded scholarship programme EEEmerging+, the Festival invites two ensembles to a residency in Duderstadt. Besides, there will be two EEEmerging+ concerts within the Festival programme.
In 2020, the children’s and youth programme ‘Händel 4 Kids!’ offers different workshops for school classes and groups. Popular formats such as the Kinder-Uni (Children’s University) and the family version of the Festival opera are also part of the programme.
The »Händel 4 Kids! website soon starts with a new partner class. It is still following the main approach: a blog ‘by children for children’, to discover Handel’s works and interesting facts from the baroque era.
