FUTURE 2015-16

30th July 2015

The summer weeks are disappearing fast; the children will be back at school in a few weeks; and plans are in progress for the autumn Handel concerts and the LHF and HSC 2016.

As many of you will know Denys Darlow died on 24 February this year. He started the London Handel Festival in 1978 and it has grown and changed over the years, but the essentials are still as he envisaged them in the early days - Handel's music in Handel's Church and the performance of many of his lesser-known works. We will be celebrating Denys's work on Tuesday 24 November at St George's, Hanover Square at 7pm. This will be a ticketed concert with reserved seating, but free with a retiring collection. We have invited some singers who worked with him when they were beginning to make their way in the business and were much encouraged by Denys and his enthusiasm. They will be accompanied by the London Handel Orchestra; the Choir of St George's and conducted by Laurence Cummings.

Earlier in the month on 11 November we have our annual concert and dinner at Chandos House, which is a lovely, intimate evening in beautiful surroundings. Ruby Hughes, Winner of the HSC in 2009, will join Laurence Cummings for this concert.

On 3 December we have our annual, very popular performance of Handel Messiah, conducted by Simon Williams at St George's. 

We then have a short break until the Festival starts booking in January and the opera, Ariodante, launches the Festival on 8 March. You can see other events that have been planned on the Home page of this website.

If you would like to take part in the Handel Singing Competition 2016 start thinking about it now, as the deadline for applications is 8 January. You can find information on the HSC page of this website.
