This year’s Bolton School Joint Spring Concert was enjoyed by a large audience in the town’s parish church, next to which the School was once sited. 

Reverend Canon Dr Chris Bracegirdle welcomed the School to what he believed to be ‘the best parish church in the world’ before the Senior Concert Band, conducted by Miss Sherry, got the evening of music underway. They played three melodies with accomplished aplomb: With Fire and Sword, Viva! and soundtrack highlights from Guardians of the Galaxy. They were followed ‘on stage’ by the School’s Intermediate Concert Band who, led by Mrs Wade, performed admirable versions of Pirates of the Caribbean and Skyfall

City of Stars and In the Mood were the chosen numbers of the saxophone ensemble, which comprised boys and girls. The Boys’ Division Tuned Percussion Ensemble played Earth Wind and Fire’s Fantasy, which had been arranged by Mr Forgrieve. The Chamber Choir, conducted by Mr Ainscough and making full uses of the stunning acoustics, performed Stephen Sondheim’s The Ballad of Sweeney Todd and Sunday before it was the turn of the Girls’ Division Tuned Percussion Ensemble to play Tico Tico

The wonderful evening of early Spring music-making concluded with Mr Lovatt directing the Senior Orchestra through The Blue Danube Waltz, Adagio for Springs and Romeo and Juliet Overture.
