Forthcoming Events

BFCS’s 2021-2022 season is full of contrasting delights – we’re thrilled to be back performing in person.

Our season launches with an evocative programme of contemporary choral music, from the shimmering beauty of Eriks Esenvalds Stars and Long Road, to the beguiling textures and drama of Whitacre’s Cloudburst. This is complemented by music by Lili Boulanger and Reena Esmail and a great team of guest musicians and soloists.

We welcome back Rothwell Temperance Band for our Christmas concert, and in March sing Bach’s mighty St Matthew Passion in a new English translation.  In summer 2022 we try our hand at opera with Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, together with madrigals by Barbara Strozzi and Bach’s beautiful cantata 196.

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

Cloudburst – music to delight and beguile

November 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for a concert of shimmering beauty; the Northern Lights inspired sound world of Eriks Esenvalds, the perfumed intensity of Lili Boulanger, Eric Whitacre’s incredible Cloudburst, Indian and Western music blended in Reena Esmail’s TaReKiTa and one of our favourites, Stephen Paulus’ The Road Home.  We’ll be joined by soprano soloist Alicia Cadwgan, pianist Christopher Pulleyn, and flute and percussion.  In addition, we will be premiering a new video collaboration with Bradford Friendship Choir, Bradford’s choir for refugees and asylum seekers.

Socially distanced seating is available in the very large hall, and we encourage you to look after everyone in the audience by taking a lateral flow test before attending and wearing a mask if possible.
