BFCS’s 2018-19 season is full of great music for audiences and singers alike: Fauré’s serene Requiem; a traditional Yorkshire Christmas concert and the glorious riot of Carmina Burana and Constant Lambert’s Rio Grande.
Why not make 2018 the year you join our friendly and exciting choir and experience the power of choral music? Rehearsals take place in St Peter’s Church hall (Saltaire) every Wednesday during term time, 7.30-9.30pm.
Thomas Leech, our Musical Director since 2008, enjoys a reputation as an outstanding and inspirational choral director, combining this with frequent appearances as a guest conductor and workshop leader.
We exist for the community as well as our members and audiences and invest in a range of wider activities including our Learn to Sing courses, Come and Sing events and support Bradford Friendship Choir. Our new 2020 project aims to increase access to choral music for younger people.
Bradford Festival Choral Society was founded in 1856 following the opening of St George’s Hall and the inaugural Bradford Musical Festival. 162 years later we are still going strong, committed to musical excellence and to the experience of our members and audiences!
