Bradford Festival Choral Society Spring/Summer Concert

All Saints Parish Church, Old Main Street, Bingley, BD16 2RH

"Established in 1856, Bradford Festival Choral Society is one of the oldest and most exciting choirs in the North of England. Performing at least four concerts per year, we have a fascinating past and a vibrant future. Throughout our illustrious history we’ve worked with the outstanding musicians of the day including conductors Edward Elgar, Charles Parry, Charles Halle, Malcolm Sargent, David Willcocks, Richard Hickox and Peter Maxwell Davies and composer John Rutter; our soloists have included such legends as Kathleen Ferrier and Peter Pears. We’ve recently worked with composer Duncan Druce – known for his completion of the Mozart Requiem – and jazz sensation Will Todd, composer of the acclaimed Mass in Blue.

Since 2008 the choir has been enjoying a revival under the baton of its young and dynamic Musical Director Thomas Leech, who has led us enthusiastically into new territory while constantly encouraging excellent performances of choral classics. The recent re-emergence of choral singing as a popular activity has brought us many new members of all ages, thoroughly enjoying themselves regardless of ability or previous experience."
