The Bury St Edmunds Friendly Orchestra (BFO), a local community orchestra, was founded in the autumn of 2006.
Members enjoy their weekly rehearsals at Sybil Andrews Academy in Bury St Edmunds led by our Musical Director, Chris Parsons; and have great fun playing together whilst working hard to achieve the best that they can. Many friendships have been formed and several small chamber music groups created.
We perform three public concerts a year, including a Christmas charity concert. The Spring Apex concert is now a regular highlight for the BFO, with orchestra members very much enjoying the experience of playing in such a lovely venue.
Bury St Edmunds Friendly Orchestra is a registered charity No. 1157702
