Handel was known to encourage young singers, many of whom became his star soloists and were known as ‘Mr Handel’s Scholars’. We continue his great tradition of nurturing talent through our Handel Singing Competition, which is now in its 15th year. This concert is an opportunity to celebrate the success of the competition, and to hear four past finalists who have gone on to glittering international careers.

This will be an evening to remember, an all-Handel programme guaranteed to please everyone, from those new to baroque music to established aficionados with a ravishing selection of sung items and orchestral pieces.

Concert Duration:
approx. 2 hours
