Laurie Ashworth - Prize-Winning Opera Singer

The abundance of music at Bolton School was one of my main reasons for going there. I remember visiting before I took the entrance exam and thinking ‘I really want to come here’. While at school I had so many opportunities to participate in both the Senior Choir and Chamber Choir, and the Music Department regularly held informal concerts which were fantastic opportunities to perform. I remember the choir performed Verdi’s Requiem — and that’s something that’s stuck with me as it is such a wonderful piece.
