Quality musical entertainment for older people.
Since January 2003, Connaught Opera have arranged and performed around 200 concerts a year for older people in the Greater London Boroughs and beyond. We have achieved this by raising funds that enable us to offer concerts free at the point of delivery to venues for elders.
Connaught Opera is registered with the Charity Commission No. 1131004.
