Handel & Hendrix Homepage

After taking a break for the summer, our weekly Baroque concerts in Handel House are back this month. Plus at the end of September we’re taking part in the first ever Emerge Festival – the new London Lates Festival.

Find out what else we have coming up this month below.

From Heavenly Harmony

Tuesday 3 September, 6.30-7.30pm

Starting off our new season will be Anthony Pleeth (Academy of Ancient Music, The English Concert) and Tatty Theo (The Brook Street Band) exploring the beautiful and convivial sound-world of music for two cellos.

Guitar Workshops

Saturday 7 September, 11am-12pm

This session from our resident guitar teacher Nigel Jones will focus on how to ‘play the changes’. In a nutshell, this means moving your lead lines’ tonal centre with each chord change.

These workshops are great fun, and an amazing way to pick up some new skills and ideas.

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Tuesday 24 September, 6.30-7.30pm

Come and listen to some of Handel’s most heroic and exciting music, and characters in the form of three Kings.

Masterclass with Deborah York

Thursday 26 September, 11am-1pm

Soprano Deborah York, who has established a reputation as one of the finest Baroque singers in Europe, hosts this masterclass with our Handel House Talent singer Hannah Ely.

Emerge Festival 2019

Saturday 28 September, 7-10pm

Two nights in September will see a creative kaleidoscope of events take place over 11 London Boroughs. With one ticket, you’ll have access to all the night’s venues and some of the best breakthrough artists in town.

Wigmore Hall: Handel’s Aci, Galatea e Polifemo
Thursday 26 September, 7:30pm

Founded in Milan in 2008, the Italian Baroque specialist ensemble made its successful Wigmore debut in 2016. Handel’s earliest setting of the story of Acis, Galatea and Polyphemus was composed for Naples in June 1708, during his vitally important Italian period, when the style to which his music would largely adhere for the remainder of his career was essentially formed.
