"Handel's Journey: From Germany to England via Italy"

"Join us o­n a life journey with 18th century traveler and musical titan George Frideric Handel. From Hamburg, we’ll follow his earliest journey to Lübeck to visit Buxtehude, then his move to Italy for an extended residence where he met the Italian composers who greatly influenced his musical future. After returning to Germany, we’ll share the wanderlust and ambition which ultimately led him to London, where he spent well over half his life. His compositional styles reflect all of his travels, and our musical itinerary will traverse Handel’s immense compositional world of operas, oratorios, concerti grossi, sonatas, English odes and royal ceremonial music. Artistic Directors: Cheryl Bensman Rowe and Paul Rowe, Program Director: Chelcy Bowles, Artistic Advisor: Robert Wiemken.

Guest Artists-in-Residence:

* Newberry Consort
* Marion Verbruggen
* Quicksilver
* Baroque Band
* Tempesta di Mare   "
