The 2022 Islington Proms season will run from 9 to 24 September, with concerts and other events at St James’ church, Prebend Street, N1 8PF, and an exhibition of art throughout the month.
The musical offerings promise to be as varied and stimulating as ever. We’re still negotiating with artists and putting together the full package, but here are some events that we’re already confident about:
As a curtain-raiser, our traditional al fresco Pocket Prom happens in the afternoon on Sunday 12 June – operatic arias from soprano Tanya Hurst and swinging jazz from the Martin Klute Trio in the vicarage garden. Bring a picnic! From 4pm at 1a Arlington Square, London N1 7DS. Tickets for the Pocket Prom are available here.
9 September American-Scottish singer-songwriter Dairy Chute
10 September Singer(s) TBC
11 September Recital on St James’ newly-restored organ
16 September Baroque trio Incantati (recorders and viols) play music ancient and modern
17 September Chamber music from a piano trio (piano, violin, cello)
18 September Youth Prom, showcasing talented young local musicians
23 September Eclectic Voices (‘London’s most versatile choir’) sing Haydn, Britten and more
24 September The Last Night of Our Proms features the Haydn Chamber Orchestra with a programme that includes Grieg’s Piano Concerto

Putting our programme together…
It’s impossible to put a value on the experience of hearing great music, played live, in the company of others.
I do hope you will join me at
St James’ to share the experience.
Yoon Chung, Artistic Director
