"Bolton School was such a large part of my life. I can safely say that I would not be doing what I do for a living if it wasn’t for the vibrant arts scene at the school and the encouragement that I was given."

Neil Eckersley, Former Pupil and Theatre Producer

Jazz Band Returns to Montreux Jazz Festival

Wednesday, 25 June 2014

The Joint Jazz Band is delighted to announce that they will be returning to Switzerland in July to perform at the Montreux Jazz Festival for the second time!

It is a fantastic achievement to be invited to play once again at such a prestigious festival. The band will perform on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th of July at Parc Vertex, one of the festival’s free venues. They will be sharing the stage with jazz musicians from around the world: Swiss soul singer Iris Moné, the Tucson Jazz Institute Ellington Big Band, Blue Note Tokyo All-Star Jazz Orchestra, Australian modern jazz ensemble Nucleus, Brazilian pop singer Lane Cardoso, and many more prestigious names. More information can be found on the festival website.

To celebrate, the Jazz Band will be performing a Pre-Tour Concert in the Arts Centre on Wednesday the 2nd of July at 7.30pm.

This promises to be an excellent evening full of wonderful music. Tickets are free of charge and the bar will be open after the concert for anyone wishing to enjoy a social drink.

Due to a sell-out performance at last year’s Jazz Band Concerts, tickets will be allocated. Please contact Mr Forgreive in the Boys’ Division (ikf@boltonschool.org) or Miss Deady in the Girls’ Division (cdeady@boltonschool.org) for tickets.
