Bar Is Raised Again At Annual House Music Competition
The Barbara Sutton Hall was packed to capacity on the evening of Friday 25 May as our Senior School Houses competed against each other on stage at our annual House Music Competition.
Every student in the Senior School was required to represent her House, forming part of the full House Choir. Other items on the evening included A Capella, Instrumental Ensemble, Instrumental Solo or Duo and everybody’s favourite item, Stage Song from a Musical.
Since the beginning of Term Two, the school has literally been buzzing as each House has auditioned, rehearsed and choreographed its musical items. Before, at lunch and at the end of the day, the corridors, oval and open spaces have been a hive of music.
From John Deacon, Lana Del Ray and Elton to Freddie Mercury, Daft Funk and Pharrell Williams – the audience was certainly taken a musical journey through the decades. After intermission, those in attendance were treated to musical acts from Grease, LaLa Land, The Greatest Showman and Peter Pan.
We congratulate all performers who represented their Houses on the evening. In particular, we acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our Year 11 House Music Captains who worked tirelessly for 6 weeks to stage the night – Tracy Chen and Alysha Lam (Lawrence), Bonnie Thorn and Louise Zhang (Schofield), Madeline Li and Ashley Chan (Singleton) and Maryanne Li and Yesenia Chang-Gonzalez (Taylor).
There can only be one winner and the overall winner of the 2018 House Music Competition was Schofield. Congratulations to Bonnie, Louise and all Schofield girls for taking out the evening.
