Boys Celebrate Christmas with Festive Concert
Friday, 14 December 2012
Bolton School Junior Boys filled the Boys' Division Great Hall with a host of festive music and song in their Annual Christmas Carol Service.
The Lower School Choir treated family and friends to performances of 'Calypso Carol' and 'A Maiden Most Gentle', while the Upper School Choir impressed with 'Candlelight Carol' and 'Jesus Child'. A whole school rendition of 'Zither Carol' filled the hall, along with a vibrant performance of 'Jingle Bells' from the Recorder Group and several Christmas readings from the boys.
The audience joined in throughout the service with hymns and carols including favourites 'Once in Royal David's City' after a solo performance of verse one by Rishiraj Das, 'See Him Lying on a Bed of Straw', 'O Little Town of Bethlehem', 'Silent Night' and 'O Come All Ye Faithful', and Mr Whittaker, Head of Junior Boys, finished the service with prayers and blessing.
At the end of the service, there was a collection for Ondukuta Combined School in Namibia which the Junior School is partnered with.
