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.

Aged 30 or under, or on a low income?  Tickets for all our concerts are FREE!

Love and Longing

June 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

We return to the historic parish church of Bingley for an evening of beguiling song.  The lutenists of 16th Century England were the musical stars of the day, singer-songwriters who wrote of love, lust, despair and death!  In the first half of our programme we are joined by a soprano and lutenist, singing music from Dowland’s suggestive Come again, sweet love doth now invite to Thomas Campion’s beautiful Never weather beaten sail.

By way of contrast we then explore fabulously sonorous music from the living composers, including Eriks Esenvalds, inspired by the ethereal beauty of the Northern Lights.
