The 2019 Handel with Flair fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, May 1 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Madison, WI.  There will be a wonderful program featuring music of Handel and his contemporaries, followed by the exciting announcement of this year’s seven finalists.   A reception featuring artisan chocolates will top the evening off.

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


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 cost of professional accompaniment by the Madison Bach Musicians and the recent increase in the prizes being offered.

Support Us  with a web donation through Network for Good.  This will help us support young singers throughout the competition process by underwriting travel grants and awards, as well as providing remuneration for competition judges and instrumental accompanists.


You can also donate by mail!  Please complete our HAC donation Form and send your check donation by mail to:
