Wish Handel a happy 334th birthday with a concert from the prestigious Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Enjoy an evening of beautiful music-making and visit the Foundling Museum's Handel Gallery to learn more about the composer’s generosity to the newly-established Foundling Hospital.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has shocked, changed and mesmerised the music world. Residencies at the Southbank Centre and Glyndebourne haven’t numbed its experimentalist bent. Record deals haven’t ironed out its quirks. Period-specific instruments have become just one element of its quest for authenticity. Today the Orchestra is cherished more than ever. It still pushes for change, and still stands for excellence, diversity and exploration. And almost three decades on, there’s still no orchestra in the world quite like it.
