Bolton School Senior Boys

Junior Boys Enjoy Brass Group Concert

The Boys’ Division Senior School Brass Group entertained Park Road pupils in a lunchtime performance as part of the Junior School’s ongoing concert series. Ten pupils gave splendid accounts of ‘Let Me Entertain You, ‘The Eye of the Tiger’, ‘Living on a Prayer’, ‘Up Town Funk’ and ‘Tequila’. They were directed energetically by Mrs Hughes-Williams. Mr Mallon gave a very impressive rendition of ‘Fnugg’, a piece utilising complex and unexpected multi-phonic techniques on the tuba. Demonstrations of the trumpet and trombone, together with impressive solos, were presented by Adam Battersby and Jamie Death. The trumpets and cornet sections were also featured.

The enthusiastic members of the young audience provided rapturous applause throughout the concert and departed with the sounds of their shouts of ‘Tequila’ ringing in their ears!
