News 2011: (UK) Handel House - Looking Back on 2011

Contributed by Admin on Jan 01, 2012

“… we at Handel House reflect on the amazing year we have had. The main highlight – and milestone – has been our 10th anniversary year. To celebrate we had some very special performances from Richard Egarr with his English suites by Bach and Handel and the London Handel Players in residence performing 8 concerts over 4 days. Not to forget Composer-in-Residence Kerry Andrew's series which included a wonderful event which saw the bed in Handel’s bedroom dressed beautifully with a ribbon score as if all his musical ideas were spilling out uncontrollably.

We have also had 2 great exhibitions: 25 Brook Street celebrating the history of the House and the wonderful musical drawings and paintings by Marcellus Laroon, the first to be displayed together for over 40 years. And not forgetting our new website!

All in all, it has been a great year and we look forward to sharing more exciting concerts and exhibitions with you in 2012.”
