A TRADITIONAL school concert was livestreamed for the first time.

Bolton School girls' division staged their May Serenade in the Great Hall, but this year pupils, staff and their families enjoyed the music from their homes.

The concert featured 15 soloists, three choirs and one ensemble.

They played and sang a wide range of music ranging from Beethoven, Paganini and Prokofiev, a piece from ‘Les Miserables’ and even The Weekend’s hit ‘Blinding Lights’!

The Wind Ensemble played the theme from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. The Joint Chamber Choir sang ‘The New World’ while the Year 9 Choir sang ‘Fight Song’ by David Bassett and Rachel Platten.

The Girls’ Chamber Choir brought the May Serenade to a moving close with ‘Someday’ from ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ and ‘Fields of Gold’. The recording is now on YouTube.

Unfortunately, technical difficulties on the night meant that the stream cut out half way through the programme. However, the show did go on and the remaining acts performed for the cameras.

The recording was later released via YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
