The Opera Project
The Opera Project is a classical singers’ forum that supports singers in the community by offering performance opportunities for professionals, students, and emerging artists alike. A charitable non-profit organization, The Opera Project raised money during its first season for St. Andrew’s Church, Lambertville, New Jersey, to restore the historic Hook and Hastings organ. During the second year, The Opera Project raised money for Doctors Without Borders. In addition to the regular concerts of its third season, The Opera Project expanded its horizons with several concerts to benefit local benevolent organizations, including the Briteside Adult Day Center in Flemington, New Jersey.

Winter's end is on the horizon and The Opera Project is preparing for its spring season. There have been a few changes in the schedule this year. The Rent Party, our annual fundraiser, has been rescheduled from January to the Fall season. Stay tuned for the time and date!
The season opens with The Art of the Song on Sunday, March 20, at 3:30 PM at The Prallsville Mills, a concert of American and European art songs. "An art song is most often a musical setting of an independent poem or text intended for the concert repertory."
Next is April in Paris 3 on Sunday, April 17, at 3:30 PM at the Prallsville Mills. This very popular concert is back again with French opera arias, art songs, and beloved popular music. So dust off your beret, take your amour by the hand, and come to our soiree.
The season closes with The Memorial Concert on Sunday, May 22, at 3:30 PM at the Prallsville Mills, a concert of opera arias and duets, as well as art songs, in memory of Deborah Maher. Come spend an afternoon in May at the historic Prallsville Mills, set along the banks of the peaceful Delaware River, and enjoy the beautiful voices and the inspiring music of the opera.
