The Capstone Theatre Announces Autumn Programme


The Capstone Theatre on Hope University’s Creative Campus adjacent to The Cornerstone was opened by Vasily Petrenko, Principal Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic  Orchestra and Hope Honorary Professor of Music, in March 2010. During this wonderful opening week a series of  music, drama and dance performances began with a spoken word performance by Liverpool poet Roger McGough and concluded with a piano recital by internationally renowned concert pianist, and Hope Professor of Music Performance, Joanna MacGregor.

This Early Autumn 2010 programme is the first full programme of performances and a chance to cultivate a new  audience to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Angel Field Renaissance Garden, the magnificent Capstone Building  (which is one of only two official Steinway Centres in England), and the state of the art Capstone Theatre with its Steinway D Grand Piano (the greatest piano in the world) and its magnificent acoustic.

The Early Autumn programme is again a mixture of music, drama and dance showcasing professional and student  artists from the UK, Europe, America and Asia with around 30 events running in evenings and at lunchtimes, midweek  and weekends between September and November.
