The American Handel Society and the Department of Music at Princeton
University invites you to the 2007 American Handel Festival and Meeting of
the American Handel Society to be held at Princeton University, April
19-21.

The conference portion of the festival includes an international and
interdisciplinary roster of scholars who will consider a variety of issues
concerning the music of Handel and his contemporaries, including Handel
and Judaism, music, myth, and allegory, the reception of Handel,
performance practice, Handel^s instrumental music, vocality, heroism, and
masculinity. We are delighted to announce that the Howard Serwer Memorial
Lecture will be given by Andrew Porter.

The Festival opens with "Britannia's Invitation: The Life and Music Times
of George Frederick Handel as seen through contemporary eyes", featuring
the Richard Baroque Chamber Players, directed by Nancy Wilson, violin,
with soprano Laura Heimes, countertenor Daniel Gundlach, bass Curtis
Streitman, harpsichordist Gwendolyn Toch, narrated by Nathan Randall and
Judith Pierce. Friday evening at 6 PM University organist Eric Plutz will
present an organ recital at the University Chapel, and the Festival will
conclude with a performance of Handel's Hercules by the Princeton
University Glee Club, directed by Richard Tang Yuk, with professional
soloists and orchestra.

The Firestone Library will also be featuring a special exhibit of the
James S. Hall Handel Collection, curated by Paula Matthews.
