Bach @ 7 Donation

Yes, I would like to make a donation to Choral Arts Philadelphia's Bach@7 Series.


The Foundling Hospital Anthem, also known as "Blessed are they that considereth the poor" is a choral work composed by George Frideric Handel in 1749 for the Foundling Hospital in London and was first performed in the chapel there. It is one of Handel's last pieces of English church music.

All Bach@7 Series concerts are pay-what-you-wish however, a donation of $20 per person will help us continue to bring beautiful, historically informed music to life. Donations can be made here online or at the door.
