Open Singing Day

Handel's Messiah

Leslie Olive, EAC founder and artistic director, leads this singing day exploring the choral singers' and concert-goers' perennial favourite, Messiah. The day is in aid of Coram, the children's charity, which has evolved from the pioneering work of Thomas Coram, who established the Foundling Hospital in 1741. Handel was one of Thomas Coram's first supporters.

A proportion of the proceeds from the Singing Day, plus the proceeds from fund-raising activities and a retiring collection, will be donated to Coram.
