Costa Hall was the venue for this year’s Senior School House Music Competition. During the lead-up to the day, the Senior School became a frenzy of House choir and ensemble practices to make sure all performances were up to scratch to win the hotly contested House Music Competition held on Friday 25 May.
Senior School House Music sees the entire Senior School student body perform as a part of their respective House Choirs. Each house also provided a soloist and two ensemble performances. All the music for each item is selected and led by student music leaders from each House and performances are adjudicated and scored by visiting judges
Burrows were victorious in 2013 winning best House Choir with their rendition of ‘Sweet Child Of Mine’ by Guns and Roses.
Flynn House won the overall competition with their high standard of musical technique and consistently entertaining items in all four categories.
Flynn House Choir had everyone’s feet tapping with Footloose; their big band and vocalists performed Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’ and their Rock Group performed ‘Muckraker’.
Flynn’s soloist Jack Kong of Year 12 performed a jazz guitar solo ‘Yesterdays’ to win the champion House solo award.
Penman’s large ensemble won the Principal’s Award with a vocal acapella rendition of Gotye’s ‘Somebody I Used to Know’.
This highly anticipated competition was attended by parents, friends, past students and selected Middle School students, as well as the entire Senior Campus community.
