Happy New Year and welcome to 2017 at Handel & Hendrix in London

The new year is upon us and it’s going to be a year of very special anniversaries for us.

2017 marks 300 (yes 300!) years since the first performance of Handel’s Water Music and 50 years since ’67, Are You Experienced and the Summer of Love.

We’ll be putting on some very special events in the year to come, starting with right now in January.

Masterclass with Carolyn Sampson

This masterclass hosted by Carolyn Sampson (BBC Proms, English National Opera, Glyndebourne), who The Times called “one of the wonders of the operatic world”, offers a rare opportunity to watch the creative interaction between a talented young musician at the beginning of her career and an absolute master of the craft.
