Join Dame Emma Kirkby and Peter Capaldi at Coram's annual Handel Birthday Concert
Join us at the annual Handel Birthday Concert which, will celebrate a most important occasion – the 275th anniversary of the First Admission of a child to the Foundling Hospital in March 1741, then in temporary accommodation in Hatton Garden. Dame Emma Kirkby and Peter Capaldi will lead the celebrations with an evening of musical time travel including the glorious music of Handel and his successors today.
This year’s event is a journey in time. Musical delights include Handel’s Cantata, ‘Armida abbandonata’ HWV 105 and the sound of children’s voices will be heard from the New London Children’s Choir conducted by Ronald Corp singing Michael Hurd’s pop cantata Captain Coram’s Kids. Julian Perkins directs Sounds Baroque. The evening will also include our Grand Prize Draw with wonderful prizes to be won, wine reception and buffet.
