Originally founded in 1959 by Yehudi Menuhin, Bath Festival Orchestra re-formed in 2020 as an ensemble of young and ambitious musicians under the baton of Peter Manning.
As well creating the finest performances on stage in Bath, Bristol and London, the BFO is equally as dedicated to inspiring the next generation of classical music listeners and performers through its Orchestrate Creative Learning programme.
