String Quartet Plays at Holocaust Memorial
Wednesday, 29 January 2014
The Girls’ Division String Quartet represented the school at the Holocaust Memorial Ceremony in the Festival Hall at Bolton's Albert Halls.
Fay Wan, Alice Rigby, Natasha Hall and Katie Hurt gave a splendid performance of 'Ashokan Farewell' during the ceremony, which was led by Canon Matthew Thompson, the vicar of Bolton.
In addition to the Girls’ Division String Quartet, local primary schools and Sharples School contributed readings and musical items. The ceremony concluded with the lighting of candles by school and community representatives as a symbol of hope.
The ceremony was a moving tribute and memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. This is the second year that Bolton School has been invited to perform at this very important and well attended ceremony, organised by the Bolton Interfaith Council.
