Handel Birthday Concert 2020
Join us to celebrate Handel’s legacy and the Foundling Hospital Boys Marching Band, and learn how foundlings became the backbone of British Army bands for over one hundred years.
Leading international baritone Christopher Purves joins Sounds Baroque in arias by Handel, directed by Julian Perkins. Talented young students from the Junior Guildhall School of Music & Drama will perform with Sounds Baroque in instrumental works by Boyce, Corelli, Purcell and Stanley, while the Band of the Scots Guards will bring our narrative about the Foundling Hospital Boys Marching Band to life.
This year, the audience can even follow in the footsteps of the Foundling children by singing in Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus. Copies of the music will be provided.
