Join leading classical performers to celebrate the 21st Anniversary of the RCPCH with a concert of vivacious and joyful works by Handel.

The concert will feature celebrated masterpieces alongside lesser-known gems, and will conclude with a complete performance of the Foundling Hospital Anthem, which culminates in a joyful rendition of the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’.
