This is Classical Bristol

Out with the old, in with the new

It's never too early to get excited about the next classical season! With the last few concerts of this year coming to a close, why not take a look at what treats September has in store. Colston Hall beginning it's £48.8m transformation hasn't stopped the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra from making the trip to Bristol, with a series of concerts held across the city and in Bath too. September also sees the start of the Bristol Choral Society's new season - and the opening of St George's Bristol's new spaces for creative minds. The venue is kicking off 2018/19 with what promises to be a spectacular performance by Benedetti, Van Der Heijden and Chauhan on 6 September, with Christian Blackshaw and Soloists from the Berliner Philharmoniker on 21 September with a contemporary twist on Mozart and Schubert. It may be the end of another fantastic season of music in Bristol - but with so much more just around the corner, take a look at what you can experience this autumn. Classical Bristol is taking a short break after this edition for our summer hols, but rest assured we'll be back with you in time for the new season.
