During the Easter break, Bolton School’s Joint Senior Concert Band performed at the National Concert Band Festival in the prestigious concert hall of the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).

The group performed to a large audience and received encouraging feedback from Simone Rebello of the RNCM.

They also had the opportunity to watch numerous aspirational performances before a small number of the band joined the Royal Marines Band for a performance.

It proved to be an excellent day for the concert band, who was thrilled to receive a Gold Award, with the percussion section being awarded an Outstanding Performance Award.
