The Friends of Bolton School (FOBS) choir launched in November 2014 and is flourishing under the direction of Mrs Andrea Price, Director of Music in the Girls' Division at Bolton School. The choir is made up of current and former parents, friends and alumni of Bolton School.
Recent performances include:
Howells' Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis at the Centenary Choral Evensong at Bolton Parish Church in April 2016.
O Magnum Mysterium and Angelicus at the 2016 Christmas Celebration Concert. Click here to watch the Friends of Bolton School Choir and the Joint Concert Band perform ‘Angelicus’. Listen again to the whole of the Christmas Concert via Soundcloud by clicking here.

Rehearsals take place regularly on a variety of weekday evenings in the Girls' Division, with parking available in the Girls' Division quad. There are no auditions but the ability to sight-read music is required. The choir is particularly short of tenors and basses but everyone is welcome; attendance at all rehearsals is not compulsory.
