Join Bradford’s historic award-winning choir, together with line-up of professional soloists who have performed with many of the UK’s biggest Opera companies, for a journey through some of opera’s greatest and most loved choruses and arias, including Verdi’s Va Pensiero, Mascagni’s Easter Hymn and Bizet’s Habanera.

Using the evening’s music to create a unique operatic story, the choir will take audiences on an exciting adventure, setting sail for a journey of discovery, peril, sadness and joy…

Conducted by Assistant Musical Director, Christopher Pulleyn, a collaborative pianist & répétiteur who works with Opera North, Leeds Conservatoire & Royal Northern College of Music who has worked with the choir since 2010.

About the Choir
Bradford Festival Choral Society (shortlisted for the 2023 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards) was founded in 1856, after being put together as a temporary group for the opening of Bradford’s St George’s Hall in 1853. With around 120 singers, the choir regularly programmes classic choral works that are such an important part of the choir’s heritage while also exploring exciting new music by living composers.
