To mark the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Arts Society (previously known as NADFAS), the London area of the organisation presents an afternoon concert of music directly associated with the English capital.

It is often forgotten that London has not only inspired a wide range of musical compositions from the time of Henry VIII onwards, but has also played host to many European performers and composers – including GF Handel, J Haydn and F Mendelssohn – who found London audiences particularly receptive to their latest compositions.

With a team of eight performers, Peter Medhurst introduces and discusses a range of compositions that reflect changing tastes in London’s musical life down the centuries. Drawing on some of the finest composers ever associated with the musical life of London, Peter Medhurst presents and introduces a range of works from Cornysh to Coward that reflects the diversity and brilliance of masterpieces associated with England’s capital. An added delight for the event is the commissioning of a new work by the young up and coming composer Joe Howard.
