Collection Description

Collection Title
English Provinces: Bradford: St. George's Hall (1881-1971)
A collection of 29 programmes from St. George's Hall, from 1881 to 1971.

The first programme in the collection is from a concert given on 25 November 1881. The concert was a performance of a Handel oratorio, given by the Bradford Festival Choral Society and an unspecified orchestra. The concert was conducted by Charles Hallé.

The remainder of the collection dates from 1906 onwards. The collection contains a significant number of programmes from Bradford Subscription Concerts. These are largely from the 1910s, 1920s and 1940s, though there are a few programmes from later concerts. The concerts were either recitals, chamber music concerts or orchestra concerts - the latter given by the Hallé Orchestra.

The remainder of the collection includes programmes from solo recitals, choral concerts and orchestra concerts. The ensembles represented in the collection are from both the United Kingdom and Europe, and include the Bradford Permanent Orchestra, Bradford Festival Choral Society and the BBC Concert orchestra.

The programmes are arranged chronologically.
