Since the year 2000 we are celebrating Handel's birthday in his home town Halle with a large Messiah choir performance. More than 400 singers from near and far come togther for rehearsal, performance and celebreation.

The historical city center of Halle is the perfect setting for this. Visitors can visit Handel's house of birth and the market church, where he was baptised and learned to play the organ.

Additionally, "Halleluja Händel" gives singers the opportunity to sing "the best of Handel" at the End of September.
