Furioso: an Evening of Handel Opera at the John Waldron Arts Center, July 18

A project supported by Early Music Associates, Inc., Ivy Tech Community College, The IU Jacobs School of Music Historical Performance Institute and Project Jumpstart.


18th-century composer George Frideric Handel, perhaps known best by modern day audiences for his famed oratorio Messiah, was also one of the most prolific and significant composers of Baroque opera. At a total number of 42, almost all of which survive to this day, many of Handel’s operas have recently enjoyed an increased interest from several mainstream opera companies and audiences nationwide. 


On July 18, Bloomington audiences will have the opportunity to enjoy selections from several of Handel’s operas in a concert titled Furioso: An Evening of Handel Opera. Indiana University early music student organization Gamma Ut, and operamission, a New York City based opera organization founded by harpsichordist, conductor, and Jacobs School alumna Jennifer Peterson, will join forces to present this ‘medley’ of Handel operatic arias.


Backed by an orchestra performing on historical instruments, Peterson will lead a cast of six talented singers. Hailed by the New York Times as performing with “spirit and polish” and providing “enjoyable production(s) with some fine singing”, Peterson is quickly establishing herself as a specialist in 18th-century opera.


This unique performance will be free and open to the public and is supported by Ivy Tech Community College and the Bloomington early music service organization Early Music Associates, as well as the IU Jacobs School of Music Historical Performance Institute and Project Jumpstart.


The performance will be presented on July, 18th at 7pm at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center.
