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. 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."

Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra

"Here a group of amateur musicians met in 1891 to found a ‘Philharmonic Band’. In its long history it has experienced both triumph and disaster (the full story of its first 100 years is told in its 250-page official history An Improbable Centenary), but for some years now it has enjoyed uninterrupted success – recognised by the award of the National Federation of Music Societies’ Sir Charles Groves Prize in 1993 and a Performing Rights Society Enterprise Award in 1991 and again in 1996.

Each season the 80-strong-orchestra (augmented by outside players if necessary: it has more than once fielded over 100 performers) gives three or four concerts in Huddersfield Town Hall, and further concerts in other venues."
