Christina Bate (IVth) took home titles for both Favourite Song 12-14 year and Musical Theatre 12-14 years, singing The Wizard and A Lovely Leggy Potion. Joseph Wright (UVth) performed The Three Ravens and won first prize in Folk Song 14-17 years.
Pamela Davies, Singing Teacher at the School said: “They all had a wonderful day, performed extremely well and benefited from a very good adjudicator, David Kirby-Ashmore, who has a brilliant sense of humour and imparted an enormous amount of good advice to the competitors.”
