Bradford Cathedral’s Girls Choir Head to Haworth for First ‘Safari Evensong’ of 2024

 

The Choir of Bradford Cathedral holds regular ‘Safari Evensongs’, where they head to local churches to sing.

On Sunday 25th February the Girls Choir will head to St Michael and All Angels on Haworth Main Street for the first of these for 2024.

Revd Oli Preston, Rector of Haworth and Cross Roads, says:
“We are very excited to welcome Bradford Cathedral Choir to St Michael and All Angels’, Haworth Parish Church. As 'the Bronte Church’ we have many people come to connect with the cultural heritage here, so it is wonderful to host Safari Evensong as another cultural highlight for visitors and locals to engage with.

“Evensong is one of the jewels of the Anglican tradition - a spacious, beautiful, peaceful space to encounter the presence of God. We have memories of having a choir here, and would love to explore opportunities for regularly gathering people for choral singing here again.”


Anthony Gray, Assistant Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral, says:
“'We are delighted to be continuing our long running series of 'Safari Evensongs' into 2024. The girl choristers are hugely looking forward to visiting Haworth at the end of February, singing music by Philip Moore, Ed Jones and Thomas Ebdon.

“Our Safari Evensong events are both a great opportunity to showcase our fabulous choir in parishes around our Diocese, as well as being a brilliant learning opportunity for our young singers, who I know will love being part of this service in Haworth.”


All are welcome to Choral Evensong at St Michael and All Angels, Haworth Main Street, BD22 8DP, on Sunday 25th February at 3:30pm.
