Laurence Cummings: 25th Anniversary Celebrity Recital with Carolyn Sampson

“Sampson’s light, bright tone touches the hearts…” – The Times 

LHF Musical Director Laurence Cummings is joined for this year’s Celebrity Recital by the celebrated soprano Carolyn Sampson. Equally at home on the concert and opera stages, Carolyn Sampson is in demand as a recitalist throughout the world and much admired for her performances of Handel’s music.

This anniversary recital features some of Handel’s most loved arias for soprano as well as celebrating a very special performance partnership and musical friendship that has grown over the last 25 years between Laurence and Carolyn.
