Handel Society of Dartmouth College

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.
