London Handel Festival
St George’s, Hanover Square & Online
Each December we present a sold-out performance of Handel’s Messiah in the composer’s own church, St.George’s Hanover Square in London’s Mayfair. This year, because of restrictions around live performances, it will be different; the movements for orchestra and soloists will be performed live in the church, but the choruses will be pre-recorded by partner choirs from around the country, including a special ‘Sing at Home’ all-comers amateur choir. The whole event will be live-streamed and promises to be ground-breaking and historic, with the aim of involving several hundred singers and an on-line audience of thousands.
