We may have been forced to cancel our concerts for this period of lockdown but in the meantime you can enjoy these videos from the musicians who would have been performing for us in Handel House!
Below are a series of videos recorded from the homes of our fantastic roster of musicians, released at the same time that their concerts would have taken place.
Please note that we have taken the decision to pay all our performers regardless of these concert cancellations.
