The Handel House Museum was home to the baroque composer George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759. This landmark address is where Handel composed some of the greatest music in history including Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks. Handel House Museum runs a very successful Composer-in-Residence scheme which aims to bring an understanding of the composition process to wider audiences, provide a meaningful interpretation of the House’s history and of its famous resident composer. The Composer-in-Residence is commissioned to write new pieces inspired by Handel's music and his House. The Composer-in-Residence also runs composition workshops for adults, families and schools and partner organisations and curates a series of new music concerts.
