Bolton Parish Church Hosts School’s Spring Concert
Bolton School Music

Pupils from across the year groups at the Girls’ and Boys’ Divisions of Bolton School showed off their accomplished musicianship at a spectacular joint Spring Concert held at Bolton Parish Church.

The well-attended evening was opened by John Walsh, the Church Warden who, welcoming everyone, referenced the long-standing links between the church and the school – an earlier version of the boys’ school used to be situated right next door.

The School’s Orchestral Strings Group were the first to entertain with a polished rendering of Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. The full Orchestra then offered up impressive versions of Appalachian Morning and Danse Macabre. The Drum Corps played a perfect Wrist Warmer before the Guitar Ensemble delivered a flawless Lagrimas de Lanthe.

The perfectly pitched voices of the Senior Choir delivered Sing Gently and the School’s talented Jazz Ensemble played Stevie Wonder’s I Wish and the foot-tapping Green Onions. The Suite for Strings - Movement 1, March, and Movement 3, Alla Jig – was performed by the String Ensemble and this was followed by the Chamber Choir’s singing of The Rose, with accompaniment by students on piano and strings, and Good Night, Dear Heart. Feet were tapping again as the Intermediate Concert Band played Selections from Grease and the evening was closed out with three numbers by the Senior Concert Band: An Irish Party in Third Class, O Waly Waly and Guardians of the Waves.
