Junior Girls Deliver Two-Day Music Festival
Junior Girls Music

Musicians from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 at Hesketh House, Bolton School’s Junior Girls’ School, have been showcasing their wide range of talents over a two-day festival. The school’s best pianists took to the stage on the opening day with some excellent performances in all classes. Adjudicator, Mr Marc Murray, was impressed with both the standard of playing and the confidence of the girls. Day two saw girls playing a range of instruments, including string, vocal, woodwind, brass, drums and guitar, in another wonderful day of music. Mr Philip Dewhurst was the adjudicator for these sessions and really enjoyed all of the performances, giving some very positive and useful feedback. The festival ended with a beginner class section and a selection of ensembles. Huge ‘thank yous’ went to Miss Fairclough for putting the event together and to Mr Death for accompanying many of the instrumentalists. The top performers from all categories will take part in a Celebratory Concert on the evening of Thursday 7 March.

Mrs Carol Laverick, Head of the Junior Girls’ School, said: ‘Our Music Festival has been a real highlight of the Term, with so many girls taking part. I thoroughly enjoyed all the performances, from our youngest girls just setting out on their musical journeys, to the older and more experienced musicians who are really starting to develop their skills.

‘The final session was probably my favourite, with all of the ensembles – there is something very special about coming together as a group to perform. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to those parents who were able to join us.’
