BFO Christmas Celebration

Date 1st Dec 2024
Date The Apex, Charter Square Street, Bury Saint Edmunds, UK

The Bury Friendly Orchestra (BFO) is delighted to return to The Apex to perform a festive programme of music for all to enjoy!

They will perform seasonal favourites including Leroy Anderson’s ‘Christmas Festival’ and ‘Sleigh Ride’, alongside lesser known works by Frederick Delius and Brian Kelly.

There will also be a chance for the audience to join in with Christmas tunes from across the ages!

No Christmas concert would be complete without choral music by John Rutter. The BFO and Thetford Singers join forces to perform some of his best loved carols and also ‘Christmas Day’ by Gustav Holst, a fantasia of well known Christmas carols.

This promises to be a spectacular start to the festive season that will send you home in the Christmas spirit!
