House Music 2017

The annual House Music competition took place recently.  Item 1 was an a capella performance of ‘Follow that Star’ by Peter Gritton. The four Houses treated the song in contrasting ways with Swallow’s being judged the best for their accuracy and attention to detail.  Item two was won by Penn’s with an acoustic performance of Seasons of Love from Rent. This was beautifully sung by a choir of ten, sensitively accompanied on the piano and grabbed the audience’s attention from the start. The House song in Item 3 was also won by Penn’s with an old House Music favourite, Blame it on the Boogie. The judges used the terms pianissimo and crescendo in their summing up which indicated that it was one of the best items 3 in recent memory. This meant that Penn’s also won the Barnes Cup for the overall competition.
The evening was the culmination of a great deal of hard work from pupils and staff, especially the praefects in each House who organised their own arrangements and choreography, and was greatly enjoyed by the parents who packed New Hall to see it.

The evening also raised funds of £750 that will go to the Tim Pruss school in India.
