Our 2018-19 season begins with We will Remember, a broad commemoration of the loss and suffering of the First World War. December brings our traditional Christmas concert with Brass Band and seasonal refreshments. We will welcome Spring with Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana and Constant Lambert’s Rio Grande, and are still planning our summer concert.
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.
BFCS has always aimed to foster music appreciation in the wider Bradford community. In the 21st century this means appealing to a diverse range of people who never imagined they would be interested in either choral singing or classical music! (photo: Welcome to Yorkshire)

Bradford Festival Choral Society was founded as a direct result of the opening of St George’s Hall in 1853, when a massed choir of over 200 singers from far and wide was formed for the first Bradford Musical Festival.
