We encourage you to support the Handel Aria Competition by making a tax-deductible donation. After hearing that the expense of coming to Madison, WI for the finals was preventing singers from applying, we decided to offer $500 in travel money to every single finalist.  We did this to encourage as many young artists as possible to participate, and saw an immediate doubling of applications. We invite you to help us cover this $3,500 commitment to the emerging artists we are supporting through the Competition, as well as the professional accompaniment by the Madison Bach Musicians.

This year we are also looking for funds to pay for airfare so that our first prize winner can travel to London next spring to give a lunchtime recital in Handel’s parish church. We are very grateful to our colleagues at the London Handel Festival for making this unique opportunity available!

handel with flair 2019

Our annual Handel with Flair fundraiser was held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 7:30 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1021 Spaight Street, Madison, WI.  The exciting announcement of this year’s seven finalists was preceded by a musical program featuring U.W.-Madison faculty members Mimmi Fulmer and Julia Rottmayer, Madison Bach Musicians founder Trevor Stephenson, and two talented young singers from our inaugural Handel Aria Competition High School Singers Showcase.

A reception featuring artisan chocolates from Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier, Infusion Chocolates and Madison Chocolate Company  topped the evening off.

Tickets were $25 for general admission and $40 for special donor seating.  They were available online  through Brown Paper Tickets, and at the door.
