House Music!

CLSG students taking part in house music

Term ended with an extraordinarily exuberant and energetic afternoon in the form of the annual House Music competition. Adjudicated remotely by counter tenor and conductor, Dan Collins, the whole school was treated to a wonderful show case of musical talent. Each house was responsible for producing an instrumental piece, a vocal piece, a solo and, of course, the all important house shout. There were some really striking individual performances, as well as some very jolly and witty interpretations of well-loved songs. Before the final adjudication, the school was also thrilled to hear from the year 13 Bakers' Dozen group and then the staff, replete with Mrs Brown on ukulele. Dan Collins drew the afternoon to an end with huge praise for all performers, as well as some really useful advice and pointers.  Some of his words of wisdom included, 'Think of rhythm and gesture', 'Don't apologise' and 'Breathe and sing'. Best instrumental went to Ward, and Tudor shared best vocal, best soloist was Mimi in St Bride and the best house shout went to Fleet. Overall, however, Ward was named the winning house. What a wonderful note on which to end the term!
