28 Sep Handel in London
Sunday 11th November
14.30 – 16.00
Enter the world of music-making, theatrical rivalries and high society in eighteenth-century London, as celebrated conductor Jane Glover talks to Elizabeth Nicholson, the Director of the Handel House Trust, about the story of Handel’s life in the capital. Jane’s profound understanding of music and of musicians and her experience of conducting Handel’s work in opera houses and concert halls throughout the world makes her the perfect chronicler of his life and his music.
‘Jane Glover makes those of us who lack musical literacy better understand and appreciate Handel’s divinity.‘ Donna Leon
And, of course, it is some of the most remarkable music ever written, so we are delighted that this event will begin with a selection of Handel’s arias, sung by pupils from Dulwich College.
Venue: The Old Library, Dulwich College
Price: £11 or £30 including a copy of Handel in London (RRP £25)
