In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history’s most significant musical artists. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frideric Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring baroque music, including Messiah. On the top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where, two centuries later, Jimi Hendrix lived with his girlfriend, record player and guitar. Both were the homes of musical innovators who chose London and changed music.

Handel House Christmas Showcase

  • 18 December 2018 7-8:30pm

Musicians from our Handel House Talent scheme will celebrate their year with us by performing the very best early & Baroque music both as soloists and ensembles. The programme will include some of Handel's greatest music such as pieces from his sacred Oratorio Messiah, his operas Alcina & Il Pastor Fido, as well as pieces by Henry Purcell and a selection of other Baroque composers. 

There will also be a world-premiere of a new piece composed by our Composer-in-Residence Alex Groves inspired by the year working inside Handel's House at 25 Brook Street.

Performances will be punctuated with festive carols for all the audience to sing along to.

Suitable for

  • Any age
