Forthcoming Events

BFCS's 2018-19 season is full of great music for audiences and singers alike.  We commemorate and reflect on Armistice Day with music from composers directly affected by the tragedy of war – Finzi, Gurney and Lili Boulanger – and find solace in Fauré's serene Requiem.  In December we present a traditional Yorkshire Christmas festive concert with one of the region's finest brass bands;  enjoy the seasonal refreshments!  Spring sees us team up with a brilliant team of pianists and percussionists for the glorious riot of Carmina Burana and Constant Lambert's The Rio Grande.  Our summer plans are still under wraps … watch this space!  In addition to our main programme we appear at community events and festivals, and welcome all singers to our Come and Sing workshops, led by our inspirational team of musicians.

Tickets for all events organised by BFCS can be purchased through Ticket Source.

Access to Price Hall:
The main entrance is up several steps – there is a side entrance with level access, there is then some distance to walk or use a wheelchair to the Hall. Please email bradfordfestivalchoralsociety.org.uk for more details.
