Forthcoming Events

BFCS’s 2020-2021 season is full of contrasting delights – online performances, new YouTube singing resources and brilliant live events. 

Of course, the nature of our programming for this season remains uncertain due to the ongoing crisis, so we have planned a season that can move quickly from online to physical performances and back again quickly as guidelines and local circumstances change.

Our season launches with a first for BFCS – an online season launch concert featuring new video and audio recordings made during lockdown! You can watch this HERE
Our November concert features a beautiful selection of Romantic and modern partsongs (view HERE) and our Christmas concert (HERE) is guaranteed to get you in the festive mood! In the Spring we’ll be singing Haydn’s Nelson Mass and in June bring you Faith, Passion and Betrayal, featuring Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas.  In addition we’ll be running our brilliant vocal workshop events and continuing to support Bradford Friendship Choir, a wonderful singing group for refugees, asylum seekers and their friends and supporters.

Reduced ticket prices for groups of 5 or more, and FREE for people under 30 or on a low income.

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