Welcome to the göttingen händel competition!

Even success stories need a relaunch from time to time: For many young ensembles, the renowned and long-standing Göttingen Historical Music Series junior competition served as a platform and launchpad from which to step into the professional world of music.


The Göttingen Series now becomes the göttingen händel competition. The international competition will have its premiere from May 11 – 15, 2017 and marks the beginning of the Göttingen International Handel Festival.

The newly designed göttingen händel competition targets ensembles whose repertoire focuses on baroque music and historical performance practice. The competition forms part of the European eeemerging project, which offers emerging ensembles first-rate working conditions and prepares them for the music market by organising workshops on programme design as well as management and marketing.
