LONDON HANDEL FESTIVAL - Outline details for 2017

31st August 2016

I am delighted to announce some brief details for 2017 - please note that public booking for the Festival does not begin until February 2017, although there will be priority booking for Friends and Handel Supporters before this.  

Highlights for next year include a special concert to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Handel Singing Competition to be held at Cadogan Hall on Monday 27 March, with Ruby Hughes, Iestyn Davies, Rupert Charlesworth and Jose-Ramon Olivé, all past finalists. This concert will be used as a platform to highlight and promote the success of the competition. Our collaboration next year with the RCM International Opera School will be the rarely performed Faramondo, starting on Monday 20 March, to include a schools matinée performance.  We have our popular annual performance of Bach's St.Matthew Passion at St.George's, Hanover Square on Good Friday - 14 April, with soloists Anna Dennis, Christopher Lowrey, Nathan Vale and George Humphreys.  The Oratorio this year will be Joseph & His Brethren to close the Festival on Monday 24 April, with lead roles taken by Elizabeth Watts and Christopher Ainslie – this concert is generously supported by Mark Windisch and his friends.  All of these performances will feature the London Handel Orchestra, led by Laurence Cummings, our Musical Director.

In addition to our own London Handel Players and Orchestra, I am delighted to welcome back groups who have performed with us before and have been popular with our audiences, including South Bank Sinfonia, Opera Settecento, La Nuova Musica, Little Baroque Company and the Brook Street Band. We continue with our major artistic aims of promoting young talent and exploring lesser known repertoire.
