Under Artistic Director, Gregory Hopkins, internationally acclaimed tenor, conductor, organist and pianist, Harlem Opera Theater performances include all types of musical offerings: opera, oratory concerts, recitals, Negro Spirituals and varied forms of American music, in keeping with our mission “to provide performance opportunities for professional and developing gifted artists within Harlem and communities where opera is seldom performed; and to cultivate and expand audience appreciation for opera and classical music through creative programming.” Particular focus is given to the works of African-American composers and to projects that link different aspects of the performing arts.
Although the institution behind it was founded in 2001, the Harlem Opera Theater was established in the neighborhood of Harlem, NYC, in 2002. As such, Dr. Gregory Hopkins, the Artistic Director and an internationally acclaimed conductor, tenor, pianist, and organist, took leadership way back in the founding days to incorporate the organization along with his colleagues. Since then, we have organized and presented numerous concerts with approximately 150 singers involved and a combined audience of over 15,000 patrons of the musical arts. Today, we continue our initiatives in guiding and providing new artists with opportunities to shine. We hope to empower more musicians, including possibly you, for more decades to come. We do everything in our power to help you reach your full potential.
