Students Enjoy Vivaldi String Workshop
Friday, 20 November 2015
On the evening of Friday 20 November, six boys took part in a fantastic workshop with students from Bolton School Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions, Bolton Music Service and Salford Music and Performing Arts Service.
The workshop provided an opportunity for string pupils to participate in an intensive rehearsal and informal performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
The session was led by Stuart Hazelton, Assistant Head of Bolton Music Service and featured Darragh Morgan, a violin soloist with an international reputation. The session was fast-paced and exciting, and pupils progressed through the difficult repertoire extremely quickly. The boys were blown away by Darragh’s outstanding playing, but even more so were inspired by his encouraging words of wisdom.
The evening culminated in an informal performance for parents, and was very much enjoyed by all.
Thanks to the following pupils for performing so well, and being such good ambassadors for the school through their impeccable behaviour and the way in which they welcomed and looked after our external visitors: Elijah Egun, Alfred Birkett, James Hopkinson, Sam Reilly, Nick Thompson and Thomas Yates.
