House MusicPosted on: 25/05/2023
The House Music Competition took place this week with a range of students across the school competing to entertain the audience and to earn points for their respective House.
Each House entered at least one solo performance, with Tulyar and Nashwan delivering an additional performance apiece.
Up first, the Tulyar duet of Emily and Florence kick started the proceedings with a wonderful rendition of ‘A Thousand Years’ that really set the tone for a brilliant afternoon of music. Danny, representing Sinndar, then took to the stage and stormed through a powerful performance of Radiohead’s ‘No Surprises’ on the electric guitar.
Amber in Year 7, representing Octavius then treated the audience to a note-perfect rendition of Queen’s‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ on the keyboard with impeccable timing to keep up with all the changes throughout the song!
Soloist, Zeph in Year 7, performed a brilliant rendition of ‘Sonata in F Minor’, featuring some incredibly difficult following of the scales up and down the keys with admirable speed and accuracy on behalf of Nashwan. Fellow Year 9 soloist, Ash then performed a rendition of The Eagles classic ‘Hotel California’ for Nashwan, a stripped-down take on the rock classic utilising an acoustic guitar.
To conclude proceedings, Anya in Year 10 delivered an incredible rendition of ‘On My Own’ from Les Misérables, showcasing fantastic control and range to stun the audience in what was a truly exceptional and mature solo vocal performance.
All in all, a fantastic evening of entertainment of which all the participants can be proud, however, there can only be one winner.
1st – Tulyar – 33 Points
2nd – Nashwan – 25 Points
Joint 3rd – Sinndar & Octavius – 15 Points
