The London Handel Players are starting a new concert series in the Great Chamber at the Charterhouse, near the Barbican. The concerts are on Sunday afternoons with the first of the series on Sunday 24 February 2019, and each concert is given twice, at 2.30pm and at 4.pm.

The first programme is of Handel and Corelli solo and trio sonatas, and further ahead there are Handel and Telemann solo sonatas and quartets (17/3/2019), Handel's Flute Concerto and Gloria, and Bach's Cantata No. 182  with Rachel Brown and soloists from the Royal College of Music (14/4/2019), and Handel and Vivaldi arias and concertos with mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston who won the 2018 Handel Singing Competition (5/5/2019).

The Charterhouse was originally a Carthusian monastery which, after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, was re-built as a private house which became a school and then almshouses. The Charterhouse remains almshouses, but the historic core of the site is now open to the public. The Great Chamber dates from the Tudor period when the private house was created on the site.

Further information from the London Handel Players website or The Charterhouse website. Tickets for the first concert from EventBrite.
