Handel Birthday Concert at the Foundling Museum

Celebrate Handel's 334th birthday in style

23 February 2019 | Visit website

Join players from the esteemed Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment to celebrate George Frideric Handel’s 334th birthday in style at the Foundling Museum. Enjoy an evening of beautiful music-making and visit the Museum’s Handel Gallery to learn more about the composer’s generosity to the newly-established Foundling Hospital.

Founded over three decade ago the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has shocked, changed and mesmerised the music world. Residencies at the Southbank Centre and Glyndebourne haven’t numbed its experimentalist bent. Record deals haven’t ironed out its quirks. Period-specific instruments have become just one element of its quest for authenticity. Today the Orchestra is cherished more than ever. It still pushes for change, and still stands for excellence, diversity and exploration. There’s still no orchestra in the world quite like it.

Tickets £15, £12.50 concessions & Foundling Friends
