About Our Auction
Your generosity will make a real difference in encouraging the careers of this year’s seven talented finalists, selected from over 120 singers in the US, Canada and Europe. This Online Auction is our only fundraiser, and proceeds will help us provide travel grants to the finalists, period accompaniment by the Madison Bach Musicians, professional videos of each singer’s arias, cash prizes, and airfare to England for the first prize winner to perform a recital in Handel’s parish church during the London Handel Festival next year.
