Audition Info

Join Us!

The Handel Society is an auditioned choir and welcomes new members, soloists, and orchestra members.


Although the choir is auditioned, a love and passion for singing and a desire for learning is equally important to ability and talent, so all interested persons are encouraged to apply.

The professional-level orchestra for each concert is created with young musicians who bring their passion, budding expertise, and technical skill to each and every performance. Not only are audiences treated to high-caliber musicianship, but young musicians gain performance experience in bringing some of the classical repertoire’s most demanding and most beloved works to life.

The Handel Society of Music supports the development and interest of young musicians in classical music. Children under 16 are admitted free to all concerts, which allows families to attend together and encourages a strong musical education in young children.


Serious young musicians are also encouraged to audition for the orchestra. The orchestra gives excellent rehearsal and performance experience for young musicians wishing to pursue an orchestral career. Contact Maestro Louwersheimer via the Contact Us section.
