Be the first to hear the great operatic singers of the future, as leading artists currently breaking into the top ranks perform arias and songs to piano accompaniment. Presented by the Black British Classical Foundation, this soul-lifting concert features the best emerging singers from the BAME community as well as the debut of the Bristol Mass Choir.

The BBCF is a charity that exists to address the under-representation of ethnic minorities in the field of opera and the classical arts in general, and they have championed luminaries such as Elizabeth Llewellyn, Nadine Benjamin and Ronald Samm before they became the stars they are today.
