Hand-picked opera stars of the future will be performing in Highgate on Sunday in a concert to raise vital funds for the village's Literary and Scientific Institution.
Eminent operatic bass and senior artist of the Royal Opera Robert Lloyd, a strong supporter of the 'Lit & Sci' has put the exciting programme together with the help of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House.
The young singers with whom he will appear at Channing School have been selected from all over the world to take part in an intensive course of studies and performances at the ROH.
"These young people are already being watched world-wide as potential stars of the future,'' said Robert.
"It is a wonderful stroke of fortune that Highgate is able to get their services and it will be a thrilling experience for the audience.''
"The Institute has served the Highgate community for over 150 years and is dearly loved by everyone. It occupies a landmark building in the very centre of Highgate but maintenance has to be met from fundraising events like this.''
With Steven Moore at the piano, the programme includes recitals from popular works such as La Boheme, Rigoletto and Die Zauberflote.
The exciting line-up of young talent comprises Romanian soprano Simona Mihai, South Korean baritone Changhan Lim, Korean tenor Ji-Min Park.
By the time they leave the Jette Parker Programme after two years, all will have performed significant roles in the regular programming on the main stage at the ROH.
o Tickets for the concert cost £20 (half price for teenagers and free for under 12s) and are available at the venue (doors open 2.15pm) or by telephone 020 - 8340 3343.
