The Commonweal School's second Inter-house Music Competition 28th June 2006

The sound of sweet, sweet music echoed through Commonweal School on the evening of the 2nd Inter-house Music Competition. This year received more entries than last year and was widely thought to be of an even higher standard; so much so that 2 acts tied for 2nd place. Mrs Helen Pysanezyn adjudicated and encouraged all the contestants with her positive and constructive evaluations.

The overall winner was Stonehenge with a stirring example of drumming on The Dhol by brother and sister Kiren and Ashley Mehmi.

Tied 2nd place went to Whitehorse, Matt Harris delivering a fine Trumpet solo and Ridgeway's own excellent Blues Band - Adam Wiltshire, Sam Lee and Pat Campbell Blight entertaining in foot tapping style.

Becky O'Dea's tuneful vocals of ‘I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker’ accompanied by Tom Shrimpton on drums took 3rd place for Sarum. There were two acts that also needed recognition and Lizzie Lees violin solo and James Daubney on classical guitar were Highly Commended.

The standard of all the performers was excellent and the evening was enjoyed by an appreciative audience.
