Concerts made for choral music lovers
We invite you to experience a unique musical performance. A Berkshire Choral Festival concert is a distinct coming together of an eminent conductor, a professional orchestra, recognized soloists, and serious amateur choristers from around the world. And each program is designed with one goal in mind: to capture the full glory of choral music.
Most BCF concerts take place at our home campus in the Berkshires of Massachusetts (specifically, in Sheffield), although we perform in other states and internationally. Our concert venue is air-conditioned, and there is ample parking close to the entrance.
Join us one Saturday evening this summer!
Free preconcert lectures in Sheffield
At 6:15 p.m. before each concert, you are welcome to attend a free talk given by a leading musicologist, cultural historian, or humanities scholar. The topic may be that nights’ music, the composer, the text, or the cultural milieu of the day.
Open dress rehearsals
You are invited to our dress rehearsals on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you don’t have a ticket for that night’s concert, we ask for a donation payable at the door to help build our scholarship program.
