Queer Song Fest

Curated by classical pianist Kunal Lahiry and created in collaboration with Bristol Pride, this series of three concerts is a necessary and boundary-pushing step in making classical music accessible for the LGBTQ community in Bristol and beyond.

Rewriting the narrative of queerness within classical music, this series will not only demonstrate the rich history of queerness within the classical music scene but diversify the classical audience, providing LGBTQ communities with a safe space to experience incredible music which has been historically less accessible.

From operatic cabaret sensation, Le Gateau Chocolat, to an evening of song and vogue with Grammy Award-wining tenor Frederick Ballentine—who, along with Kunal, will be teaming up with the Bristol Ballroom Community—Queer Song Fest is set to be an outstanding series of concerts pushing for positive change within the classical music scene.
