Founded in 1807, the Handel Society of Dartmouth College is proud to be America’s oldest town-gown choral society. The ensemble performs an exhilarating range of choral and choral-orchestral music, from long-treasured masterworks to stunning contemporary pieces and new commissions. Whether we are performing at Dartmouth or on tour, our goal is to provide transformative musical experiences for performers and audiences alike.
Operatic in its earth-shaking intensity, Verdi’s Requiem is an unforgettable concert experience, from its terrifying and justifably famous “Dies irae” to the tender and peaceful choral moments. It has it all: the drama of an opera, the colorful contrasts of a symphonic masterwork and virtuosic solo moments that will leave you breathless.
