Celebrate with Handel and the AAM

Royal Fireworks on the Thames
in 1749
On Wednesday 26 September, at the Barbican Centre in London, and Thursday 27 September, at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge, the Academy of Ancient Music and their choir, under conductor Richard Egarr will be performing an all Handel concert. The programme is, perhaps, a little hackneyed, but frankly Handel's Coronation Anthems, Music for the Royal Fireworks and Water Music are all such tremendous works that you can hardly tire of hearing them. The Academy of Music made an appearance at the Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant; this time they are indoors, so the weather won't matter!
