Highbury Opera Theatre was formed in 2011 by a group of musicians, dramatists, artists and educators, to stage performances of music with a mixture of professional artists and the talents of the community, to inspire and entertain local audiences.
Our next big event: A Gala Evening on February 7th 2015, at Christchurch Highbury. Performers will include EMMA KIRKBY, NATALIE CLEIN, CLEVELAND WATKISS and CATHARINE ROGERS. It's a fundraiser, and there's also an online auction of promises. Tickets for the evening are just £15 (plus £1.50 booking fee) and available now.
HOT is led by conductor and education specialist Scott Stroman; voluntarily run by local musicians, dramatists, educators and other enthusiasts; and is working in partnership with Islington’s Union Chapel Eclectic Voices and a wide range of other local and school groups. So far, through a combination of volunteer support, regular fundraising concerts, generous 'friends' and sponsorship, we've mounted three large scale performances, all involving performers and musicians from local schools and the Highbury community, and all made available to local schoolchildren free of charge.
