Bradford Festival Choral Society

"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."

Skipton Camerata

"Created in 2004 by its founder and artistic director, Ben Crick, Skipton Camerata - or Skipton Building Society Camerata as it became a year later when it began receiving support from its major sponsor - has since established a reputation for innovative and engaging professional performances. The orchestra has performed all across the country and in more unusual venues such as Holkham Hall, Harewood House and the Globe Theatre, London. In its 10th anniversary season the orchestra appeared with Raphael Wallfisch at the Harrogate International Festival in June and gave a memorable performance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with Tasmin Little before a packed Skipton Town Hall audience."
