London Handel Orchestra
The London Handel Orchestra, which is made up of some of the UK’s finest professional baroque players, led by Adrian Butterfield, has an excellent reputation for historically informed performance. The Orchestra performs throughout the London Handel Festival, under Musical Director Laurence Cummings, at venues including Handel’s own church, St George’s, Hanover Square, and St John’s Smith Square and Wigmore Hall. The Orchestra accompanies the finalists of the Handel Singing Competition in a live performance every year.
The Orchestra also gives concerts at venues both in the UK and Europe outside the Festival period and has performed in Gloucester Cathedral during the Three Choirs Festival, the Chelsea Festival, the Windsor Festival, the Oslo International Church Music Festival, with the Royal Choral Society and for the opening of the Queen’s Jubilee in St George’s Chapel, Windsor.
