The Göttingen Händel Competition
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 became the göttingen händel competition in 2017. The competition’s third round is being held from May 20 to May 21, 2019, and forms part of the Göttingen International Handel Festival.
