From Elgar’s great masterpiece ‘The Dream of Gerontius’ to a beguiling summer concert of English lute songs and Latvian magic, our 2017-18 season is full of great music for audiences and singers alike. In the autumn, following a brilliant Mahler 2, we continue our partnership with the Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra; in December we present a traditional Yorkshire Christmas festive concert with brass band and seasonal refreshments. Spring sees us team up with a band of Baroque instrumentalists, and we end the season in the beautiful medieval parish church in Bingley with a fusion of Renaissance passion and 21st Century cool. Tickets for all events organised by BFCS can be purchased through ticket source.
