About this event

'Handel in the Strand' -  at St Alkmund's Church, Shrewsbury, 7.30pm on Friday, March 15th

A mixed programme of Baroque music by the most celebrated composers in London at the turn of the 18th century.

In the 1700s, London was quickly becoming the musical hub of Europe, attracting the great Handel himself, alongside a multitude of French and Italian musicians who seized the opportunity to play in London's thriving theatre district. This programme captures the spirit of music-making across the City, from theatres to taverns and music in the home.
