Bolton Music Service is hosting an open evening for interested young people and their parents.

The event takes place at Bolton Music Centre from 4.30pm until 8pm on Tuesday, March 1, and those who attend will be able to hear a number of the groups run by the service holding rehearsals in the main hall.

Bolton Boys Choir, Bolton Urban Music Project, Bolton Training Strings Orchestra and Bolton Youth Jazz Orchestra will all be playing, while music service staff will be on hand to talk about the wide range of opportunities provided for children and young people.

Parents whose children already have music lessons with the service will be able to discuss their child’s progress with their teacher, by ringing 01204 333533 to make an appointment.

The music services offers more than 40 ensembles covering most instruments, age ranges and abilities, as well as tuition for brass, woodwind, string, voice, guitar, percussion, piano and keyboard.

Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Children’s Services, Councillor Ebrahim Adia, said: “The music service offers such a wide range of groups to join and instruments to learn that there is something for everyone to try.

“The open evening will provide a good opportunity for those young people and parents who have considered taking up an instrument or joining an ensemble to see what’s on offer.”

Bolton Music Centre is next to Ladybridge High School, and parking is available in the school car park. Refreshments will be provided.
