Our pupils have been invited to perform at The Foundling Museum in Russell Square in London as part of their Young Artists’ Platform.
The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery.
The Foundling Hospital, which continues today as the children’s charity Coram, was established in 1739 by the philanthropist Thomas Coram to care for babies at risk of abandonment. Instrumental in helping Coram realise his vision were the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Frideric Handel. Their creative generosity set the template for the ways in which the arts can support philanthropy, something Menuhin himself felt strongly about.
The concert is at 1pm on 5 October and is free to all visitors to the Museum so if you are in the neighbourhood, please do join us. More details can be found on their website at https://foundlingmuseum.org.uk/whats-on/music/
