The Handel Aria Competition is pleased to announce a new initiative for 2019: the Handel Aria Competition High School Singers Showcase. Our goal is to encourage high school singers in the Madison, Wisconsin area to explore works from Handel’s vocal repertoire.
The debut event will take place at Capitol Lakes in Madison, WI at 2:00 on Saturday, January 26, 2019. The hour-long concert will feature several young singers performing Handel arias, as well as a guest performance of a Handel duet by Artistic Director Sarah Brailey and Founding Artistic Director Cheryl Bensman-Rowe. Karlos Moser, Professor Emeritus of the UW-Madison Mead Witter School of Music’s opera program, will accompany. The performance is free and open to the public.
All participating high school singers will receive a $100 Handel Aria Competition scholarship towards voice lessons or membership in the Madison Youth Choirs.
