Handel devoted Messiah to the support of children, giving yearly benefit performances at the Foundling Hospital and bequeathing them all his musical material. It has been my dream to follow Handel’s strong lead in celebration of 25 years of Jessie’s Fund and this we do in a shortened journey through his inspired masterpiece. Trevor Pinnock

About Jessie’s Fund

Jessie’s Fund, set up in memory of a musical little girl, helps children with life-limiting illness, disabilities, or special educational needs through music. Most of the children the charity works with are unable to speak: interactive music gives them a voice – a means of communication which needs no words. Jessie’s Fund is proud to have Trevor Pinnock as a Patron.
